Product Description

28 July 2014

Royal Mail issued a set of 6 stamps to mark the Centenary of the start of the First World War, also known as the Great War.

Four of the pictorial stamps issued in sheets have two phosphor bands, with  the 'Starburst' painting and 'We Will Remember Them' poetry stamps being all-over phosphor.  The stamps are printed by Cartor Security Printers. 

Stamps with the same designs are also in the Prestige Stamp Book, but in addition to shade differences these stamps - printed by Joh Enschede - all have all over phosphor.  The stamps and panes are shown in the gallery above, and we also have these UV images, some of which are very difficult to distinguish.  Looking at them in normal light it is easy to see the absence of the non-phosphor space between the bands.

1. Poppy stamp - the white background shows the phosphor to be all over in the upper stamp and in 2 bands in the lower (sheet) stamp:



2. Private Tickle Stamp - similar



3.  £1.47 The Response Memorial



4. £1.47 Princess Mary's Gift Box





T
he Stanley Gibbons' Concise Catalogue number for the AOP Poppy stamp is 3626a, the Private Tickle 3628a, 'The Response' 3630a, & Princess Mary's Gift Box 3631a.
£12.50 inc. tax
