Six stamps reflect various aspects of Sir Walter Raleigh's career and positive impacts that his Governorship had on the island of Jersey, each using illustration combined with words or quotes as follows.

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

Historical Figures

Sir Walter Raleigh, Governor of Jersey 1600-1603

Sir Walter Raleigh was one of the most important figures of the Elizabethan era, with a multi-faceted career which brought him to the island of Jersey as Governor during the years 1600-1603. He appeared to have been very much a 'hands on' Governor, improving the militia and the Island's defences, fostering trade and attending sittings of the courts.
