World Rally Championships - Block of Four
This block of four set features four of each stamp from our '50 Years of the World Rally Championship | Jersey Rally at 40' issue. Keith Burns illsutrates iconic cars from throughout the competition's history.
A block of four stamps is taken from the same sheet of ten; selvedges are also retained and will include the traffic lights. Traffic lights are a term used by collectors to denote the check dots or (colour dabs) printed in the sheet margins of stamps printed by modern offset litho or photogravure methods. They assist in checking that all the colours have printed correctly. Blocks of stamps from the corner of the sheet, including the ‘traffic lights’, are collected as a matched pair with the block showing the cylinder numbers.
Most of our selvedge sheets contain a plate number; a numeral, occasionally with a letter suffix, usually inscribed on the sheet margins to denote the plate from which stamps were printed - for example 1A.
All our mint/cto products are carefully prepared by our own team and supplied in glassine bags to ensure you receive them in pristine condition.
