955. Kingfishers Featured On New Singapore Issue.

  🇸🇬 Singapore Post will issue a set of 4 stamps on 26 April 2016 on the subject of Kingfishers. This highly attractive set was designed by Leo Teck Chong and lithographed by Secura Singapore Pte Ltd. and perforated 13. Rating:- *****.

  🇹🇷 The postal administration of the Turkish Republic Of Northern Cyprus issued a set of 3 stamps on 23 March 2017 on the subject of Cittaslow member towns in Northern Cyprus. The stamps were designed by GK Sonmezer and lithographed by the State Printers. Rating:- ****. 

  🇮🇳 India Post issued a miniature sheet on 22 April 2017 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Ambedkar Telecommunications Institute in Jabalpur. The design depicts an interesting Art Deco style building and this is a rather more interesting item than India Post's usual very dull stamps which feature buildings. Rating:- ***.

  🇬🇧 More Royal Mail Post and Go stamps. Issued on 21 April 2017 and on sale for just 2 days, various labels were dispensed by kiosks A012 and A014 at the 88th Scottish Congress held in Perth. Various labels were dispensed with the added inscription "88th Scottish/Congress". Kiosk A012 dispensed Machin Head labels and Thistle labels from the "Symbolic flowers" set while kiosk A014 dispensed Thistle labels and Heraldic Lion labels. Extra varieties were created by using Machin Head stamps with 2 different codes (MA13 and MA15) and Thistles stamps with the code MA17 and the Lion label with code MA15. Hence Post and Go enthusiasts appear to have had 4 different strips to buy at a cost of £32.16p as the price of a full Collectors strip was £8.04p. Rating:- 0.
