You are buying ONE set of FOUR airmail “Worldwide Postcard” stamps. Because this issue was die-cut from booklet material there are four different ‘backings’ to collect. There are only a few sets available (much harder to obtain than A1/A2 Sets). Our reference F10 Set.
Royal Mail will be despatching the stamps. So see our Shop menu for postal options. Postage We only charge postage for the first item in most categories. Any further items purchased would not increase the final postal charges. Furthermore we do not charge you for envelopes and packaging materials
Recorded Delivery or Registered Post is available if required. Consequently, loss or damage compensation is claimable if this option is taken.
These Airmail singles were issued between 2003 and 2010. Because customers may not have wanted a full booklet, the Philatelic Bureau had to issue singles. As the stamps were self-adhesive the PB decided to die-stamp or guillotine these issues to make marketing easier.
Catalogue numbers for these stamps are difficult to allocate. Consequently we have numbered them between A1 and F14. The A to F designation refers to the six Presentation Packs that the stamps appear in. The numbers 1 to 14 denote individual stamps within the packs.
In conclusion, all of our stamps are also in an excellent condition, and are unmounted mint. We also will mention any variations to this statement.
