This issue features six islanders involved in the Great War. The original images have been restored and colourised to feature their subjects in a contemporary light, offering a new perspective of this remarkable generation.
The stamp sheets give the discerning collector access to all the printer's marks and any additional information on the selvedges. The selvedges include the traffic lights which is a term used by collectors to denote the check dots (or colour dabs) printed in the sheet margins of stamps printed by modern offset litho or photogravure methods. They assist in checking that all the colours have printed correctly.
Most of our selvedge sheets also contain a plate number; a numeral, occasionally with a letter suffix, usually inscribed on the sheet margins to denote the plate from which the stamps were printed - for example 1A.
All our mint/cto products are carefully prepared by our own team and supplied in glassine bags to ensure you receive them in pristine condition.
This set of commemorative stamps, entitled Armistice & Remembrance, remember six Jersey men and woman who contributed to the war effort.
