British Stamp set with Moai

Pages: 1 3 replies

I've just found out that recently (October this year) the Royal Mail issued stamps commemorating the anniversary of the British Museum, featuring a moai on the 68p stamp.

Unfortunately, many of these special issues are only available for a short period of time
so may not still be available, but for the few Brits on the board, it might be worth asking around at local post offices.

Those are some gorgeous stamps. I love using stamps even when I don't have to. There's something so cool about them, like a holdover from another era. Sure, we can just get our postage meteres and blipped at the post ofice, but a stamp just hs that personal touch. I like to buy the pretty stamps when they come out at Canada Post, but unlike most, I actually USE them! Half the fun in Ebay selling for me is decorating the envelopes for people...

I've asked a few Post Offices for these to no avail ("Oh, those horrible masks? We didn't like those" said one counter clerk in a classic Monty Python old woman voice).

However, they are still available from
http://www.royalmail.com for £2.80 postpaid in the UK. I can't imagine they would cost that much to send to the rest of the world either.

Okay, I told this a few years ago to everyone, I will do it again now. There is a US stamp with a tiki, and since it is US, you can still use it on your mail!

When the City of Refuge was made a park, they got a stamp. You'll find them in sheets of 50 on Ebay.

We used them on Hukilau mailings in 2002.
