2244. 🇱🇰 Sri Lanka Commemorates 75 Years Of Independence.


🇱🇰 Sri Lanka Post -

2 February 2023 - 75th of Independence - 1 stamp. Printed in lithography by Department of Government Printing. Rating:- ***.

🇱🇹 Stamperija (notorious Lithuania-based producer and seller of paraphilatelic products under contract from various foreign governments) - 

🇹🇬 Products inscribed ‘Togo’ - 

Stated ‘date of issue’ - 5 December 2023 - Products relating to the commemoration of the late Queen Elizabeth II, Head of The Commonwealth, released as part of an issue of a large number of items (2 stamps from sheetlets and 42 miniature sheets) on various subjects - 

a. Previously released products (60th anniversary of the Queen’s succession, 2012) reissued with overprint applied - 3 miniature sheets.

b. New products - 3 miniature sheets.

All rated:- 0.

  This vast list of products also includes 3 miniature sheets claiming to commemorate the succession of King Charles III. Tastelessly the set features prominently the late Diana Princess of Wales from whom the king was divorced amid much acrimony and fails to depict the King’s second wife, Queen Camilla. Interestingly, one of the ‘stamps’ in the four ‘stamp’ miniature sheet depicts the King with Rishi Sunak, the latest British prime minister (there were 3 of them in 2022) who became the first person to occupy the office who is of south Asian heritage.
