  1. Definite look of his dad in those Gibraltar definitives!

  2. Are the BAT and Falklands stamps designed by Pobjoy Stamps?

    1. No. Pobjoy Stamps never designed or produced the stamps. All aspects of the production of the stamps has been coordinated by Creative Direction International & Pobjoy handled the marketing. These new stamps are, I am sure, again products of Creative Direction & are being sold on the Falkland Islands PO website though without details of production

  3. I think rather strange and unusual that the stamps of Gibraltar have at the same time the portait of the king and his profile in a corner of the stamp. I don't remember to have already seen that for previous monarchs.

    1. WK - I agree, this is poor design, clearly the small cameo is redundant.
