Royal Wedding stamps announced for 21 April - another MS

It's far easier to do a rush job with a miniature sheet than with a set of stamps so despite the wedding being announced months ago, Royal Mail is issuing a miniature sheet for the wedding of Prince William of Wales to Miss Catherine Middleton on 29 April. The sheet will be issued before Easter on 21 April.

  1. I think it is really hard to distinguish the 1st from the 1.10. Basically your eye sees the big numeral 1 and the rest gets lost.

    I wonder if people who are actually using these stamps (are there any?) will get confused.


  2. A very interesting point, and one which I hadn't noticed, Larry.

    Yes, given that many people don't know the actual price of a 1st class stamp, I wonder how many people will use all four stamps - at 78p each, rather than the 46p cost of a 1st class stamp.
