🇬🇧 The invaluable site - Norvic Philatelics Blog - has drawn attention to news of an early Royal Mail issue of 2019. In the September Newsletter of the Royal Philatelic Society of London (due to celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2019) was announced that Royal Mail will issue a miniature sheet on 15 January 2019 to commemorate this notable philatelic anniversary. As illustrated below, the announcement reveals that the sheet will include a stamp to represent each reign and the featured stamps will be the 1891 £1 green, the 1910 Tyrian plum 2d, the 1913 2/6d Seahorse, the 1936 Penny ha'penny, the 1940 Halffpenny Penny Black Centenary commemorative and the 1953 Tuppence Halfpenny Coronation commemorative. It sounds like it will be an excellent issue.

That premium price for the MyStamp sheets (face value 60 Rupees) is 300 Rupees! 5 times the face value.ReplyDelete
These stamps belong in the appendix listings of SG and other catalogues.
Dear Stewie1911, Thank you. I don't believe that the Indian My Stamp issues have had a mention in the Gibbons Catalogue and I don't believe that they would ever find a place in the main listing. They are quite interesting and it's worthwhile mentioning that they have been issued if only as a record of their existenceDelete
Best wishes, WK.
