🇬🇸 Received in the post today inside the packet containing my latest order of new issues from the Pitcairn Islands was this splendid postcard with one of the 2019 Angels Over Pitcairn Christmas stamps with a Christmas Day cancellation. This bureau delivers an excellent service and it is easy to order and pay for stamps on its website. Stamps are sent to the customer in an envelope with a real postage stamp on it and usually with a nice clear postmark. Thanks to the Pitcairn. Islands Philatelic Bureau for this seasonal item.
🇬🇬 Below are better quality illustrations of the 3 sets of Guernsey Post due to be released on 21 January 2020 which were mentioned in Blog 1555:-
21 January 2020 - inscribed ‘Guernsey’ - 250th Birth anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven, German composer (part 1) - 1 stamp. Designed by The Potting Shed and lithographed by bpost and perforated 13.5.
21 January 2020 - inscribed ‘Alderney’ - Definitives, Birds of Alderney - 16 stamps.
21 January 2020 - inscribed ‘Alderney’ - Sealife in the Ramsar area - 6 stamps and 1 miniature sheet
🇸🇬 Singapore Post will issue a set of 6 stamps on 11 January 2020 to commemorate ‘200 Years of policing in Singapore’. The set was designed by Wong Wui Kong and lithographed by Secura and perforated 13. The designs look slick but I should dearly like to see one which features just what policing in the newly founded Singapore of 1820 looked like. Rating:- ***.
Singapore Post has also issued a new machine-dispensed stamp in a design which ties in with the Chinese New Year, the Year Of The Rat. Rating:- ***.
