🇯🇲 In Blog 1438 I detailed the issue of a set of 5 stamps by Jamaica Post which commemorates the Centenary of the Jamaica Civil Service Association. I now depict here all 5 stamps which are all identical apart from the value - sadly the design is excruciatingly dull and imaginative. I still do not know the precise date of issue.
🇬🇧 Royal Mail’s issue, due on 6 June 2019, to commemorate the Normandy Landings - D Day - will be accompanied by yet another self-adhesive counter booklet costing £4.20p. This of course provides us with new varieties of the 2 commemorative stamps included in the booklet. These booklets are now being issued with almost every new set which has to be considered to be excessive. This year I have already thrown Prestige booklets off my list of new Royal Mail stamps to collect along with whole issues which do not commemorate British subjects - the Marvel Comics issue for instance - and these self-adhesive counter booklets can not now be far behind if this overissuing continues (which I suppose will be the case). The more stuff Royal Mail produces the less it sells (to me at least). Rating:- *.
