🇹🇰 In Blog 1055, I described the latest new issue from the postal service of Tokelau and the 4 stamps and 1 miniature sheet are now depicted here. Notably, these are WWF (World Wide Fund For Nature) themed stamps. They are very colourful and attractive and the photographs used in the designs are very well chosen. Rating:- *****.
Singapore Post also issued a miniature sheet on 3 August 2017 to commemorate Bandung 2017 Philatelic Exhibition in Indonesia. This is a colourful item containing the 3 Year of the Rooster stamps and sold at face value. Rating:- ****.
🇦🇺 In Blog 1024 I mentioned the issue of 2 stamps and 1 miniature sheet by Australia Post on the subject of the Centenary of the Trans-Australian Railway. In Blog 1024 I illustrated the 2 gummed stamps and the miniature sheet and booklet of 10 self-adhesive stamps are now illustrated here:-
News of more "Licensed stamp packs" from Australia Post to add to the vast list of recent such items which was highlighted in Blog 1003 and 1024.
Firstly there is a pack on the theme of BBC Earth, a British-made television programme, which contains 2 sheetlets each of 10 "Hearts" stamps with attached labels featuring various creatures. This is an attractive but entirely commercial product which has no relevance at all to Australia. Rating:- 0.
