Star Wars - a bit of a let-down, but also a relief!

Readers will recall that among the many Star Wars products (see our website) Royal Mail included 'Character Stamp Sets'. 

Without precise technical details we were not sure whether these would be strips of 5 or blocks of 10 - in which case they would have to be from different sheet printings, or whether they would be torn from the vertical strips of 5 that make up the counter sheets of 60.  Although it looked like separate stamps, we can never be sure how accurate Royal Mail publicity pictures are.

I'm pleased to say that the actual sets do not appear to contain stamps from a separate printing - although I'm willing to be corrected by somebody with better eyes or reliable information!

  1. Checked with Philatelic Bureau when ordering today, person I spoke with asked me to hold while checking stock, single stamps and not a different printer.
