1388. 🇫🇯🇸🇭 New Issues From Fiji And Tristan Da Cunha.
🇫🇯 Fiji Post issued a set of 4 stamps on 20 December 2018 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Maharma Gandhi. The issue was lithographed by Southern Colour Print. Rating:- *****.
🇸🇭 News of the first issue of the year to emanate from the excellent Pobjoy Stamps/Creative Direction stable. Not surprisingly it is another fine set of 4 stamps from the Tristan Da Cunha postal service which, this time, is on the subject of Whales. The attractive and interesting designs, to be released on 11 February 2019, are by the masterly Andrew Robinson and the issue was lithographed by Cartor and perforated 13.5. Rating:- *****.
Thanks to Juliet Warner of Pobjoy Stamps for information about this issue.
