The stamps are not bad for design.
The subject is ugly.
But in their day I suppose many thought they were gods.

At the risk of annoying all the Royalists, this is one of the most horrendous.......

No, Don't tell me that a real issue from the UK.
Why in the name, would anyone use pictures like that.
The background is awful. Ok! so is the subject.
These picture's are newspaper quality not how a national
symbol/portrait should be displayed.

re: the royals
I always thought that the royal family had to approve the designs?
maybe they did ?

re. the prince of Wales m/s: what happened to the colours? It is a terrible scan that makes the whole sheet look strange (you don't think prince Charles would really wear a greenish suit?)

Jan-Simon,

Nothing wrong with the scan...that's how the sheet looks.

Believe me, it's the ugliest stamp in the world.

I do not have it myself, but I found other pictures on the web that look rather different:



The first picture looks as if the colour balance has been changed.

By the way, I think that almost all Dutch stamps issued between 1967 and 1975 are far more ugly than any of the ones shown in this thread.

I'll check out some Dutch stamps shortly to compare.
The colours on the scan I sent are just about right, and I remember at the time there was a lot of talk in the UK and on our GB group how tacky the colours were.

It does not do either of them any favours that's for sure.

If you go here you will see another scan on our GB group to compare.

I have the miniature sheet of Prince Charles and Camilla in my collection - in real life it's a lot more like Jan's image!

And surely this must be a serious contender for the ugliest stamp:

Really? I think that Year of the Ram stamp is very beautiful. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, isn't it?
