1359. πŸ‡§πŸ‡§πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ Barbados Comments On Royal Mail's Embarassment.

  πŸ‡§πŸ‡§ Even other postal services are having a laugh at Royal Mail's expense as this Facebook comment from the Barbados postal service shows:-

  It seems that Royal Mail is an international laughing stock.

  πŸ‡§πŸ‡© The postal service of Bangladesh has issued a se-tenant block of 4 stamps which are inscribed 'Visit Bangladesh 2017'. I am not sure of the date of issue but I assume that the issue has been released in the latter part of 2018 despite the date printed on the stamps. Rating:- ***.

  πŸ‡³πŸ‡Ώ In Blog 1351 I mentioned the New Zealand Post gold foil Chinese New Year gold foil miniature sheets which are currently on sale. There are 3 types - the first with coloured stamps housed in a Perspex stand on offer for NZ$288, the second has gold stamps and is also housed in a Perspex stand and sold for a modest (note of irony here) NZ$188 and thirdly there is the large numbered miniature sheet in a limited edition of 103 with gold stamps and housed in a numbered frame and sold for the ridiculous sum of NZ$560.
