Six stamps explore aspects of 1970s popular culture, including language, music, fashion, events, food and leisure.

A pair is two stamps taken from the same sheet of ten; selvedges are also retained and will include the traffic lights. Traffic lights are 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. Blocks of stamps from the corner of the sheet, including the 'traffic lights', are collected as a matched pair with the block showing the cylinder numbers. Most of our selvedge sheets contain a plate number; a numeral, occasionally with a letter suffix, usually inscribed on the sheet margins to denote the plate from which 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.

The sunny island of Jersey, located near the coast of Normandy, saw a steady stream of tourists arriving to take advantage of the beautiful beaches, exciting nightlife and excellent cuisine during the 1970s. By that time, Jersey Airport had become the sixth busiest airport in Europe. As well as this, the financial sector on the Island boomed; in 1970 alone, bank deposits increased by 45% and continued to rise. Popular culture in Jersey, as in Britain, significantly changed during the decade as illustrated on the six stamps and Miniature Sheet in this issue.
