A blockbuster set of stamp products was issued by Royal Mail to highlight the part that the United Kingdom, and in particular Northern Ireland, has played in production of the highly successful TV series.
As well as a set of 10 gummed stamps, self-adhesive miniature sheet, prestige stamp book, retail booklet there were countless products name at enthusiasts rather than stamp collectors.
This single Iron Throne stamp is from the retail booklet, printed in gravure on ordinary self-adhesive paper with SBP2 backing paper. This will have a number in most catalogues and space in pre-printed albums because they are different to those in the miniature sheet which is printed in litho.
