I got my QE II Jubilee un-cut press sheet today.
The Silver colour tube with a description label is a nice touch; but, encrusted in diamonds would be more appropriate.
I haven't opened it to see what number out of 2,500 it is.
I'm Waiting for a special occasion. Perhaps when I get a Knighthood.
BTW, I hear there's an internal Canada Post
memo saying that the un-cut press sheets are going on sale to the general public without going through special order.
Could it be (at $80) they weren't the big and quick sellers CP thought they would be?
They're really good value for money because face value of the stamps comes to $80.....plus the fact they're a limited, numbered issue and signed by designer and engraver ensures their CV will be at least double purchase price.
I agree with other postings that the current picture of HRM is a bit harsh.....but, I would probably say the same of an engraving of me.
