🇬🇮 Royal Gibraltar Post Office will issue 2 sets of stamps on 8 September 2021. The first is a set of five on the subject of Historic Gibraltar maps, one value of which will be RGPO’s contribution to the 2021 Sepac omnibus. The issue was designed by Stephen Perera and lithographed by Bpost Security Printers. Rating:- **.
The second issue is a pair of additional definitive values in the contemporary design. These are not cheap being the £3 and £5 values. The issue was designed by Stephen Perera and lithographed by Cartor. Rating:- **.
🇸🇬 As well as the ten gummed Greetings stamps to be issued on 3 September 2021 by Singapore Post (see Blog 1931) the issue will include a booklet of 10 self-adhesive stamps but only five of the designs are included in it so that there are 2 x 5 stamps in the item. Rating:- ***.
As August reaches an end and the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness opens the door and walks in, we find that the following Commonwealth philatelic entities are not yet known to have issued or had issued on their behalf any stamps so far in 2021:-
Rarotonga Cook Islands
Turks And Caicos
This means that 26 Commonwealth philatelic entities have still not issued (or had issued in their name) any postage stamps so far this year (a reduction of just one compared with July).
