27 March 2003 - Worldwide 40g Airmail booklet stamp
Booklet of 4 stamps, and 4 airmail labels, printed by Walsall SP,
SG Catalogue number 2359
The airmail booklet stamps were not sold single by the philatelic bureau, but were made available in presentation packs. The stamps in packs were die-cut through the backing paper. In the case of this stamp, the stamps were die-cut through booklets. When the booklet was reissued in 2004, singles in packs had white backing. We do not have those.
