2183. 🇬🇧 Royal Mail And Alderney Christmas Stamps.


New issues.

🇬🇧 Royal Mail

3 November 2022 - Christmas, The Nativity - 6 stamps ((cost £8.53p), 1 miniature sheet containing all 6 stamps (cost £8.53p), 1 ‘Collectors sheet’ of 20 stamps (cost £23.05p), 2 booklets (8 x 1st (cost £7.60p) and 8 x 1st (cost £5.44p)). Designed by Baxter and Bailey and printed in gravure by Cartor and perforated 15 x 14.5. Rating:- **.

It’s pleasing that there are only 6 stamps this year and note the domestic  ‘Large’ rate stamps are now the same size as the ordinary 1st and 2nd Class rate stamps. This issue is very similar to some other RM Christmas stamps and really not very interesting.

I will add better quality illustrations when possible.
