Why this is perfect for YOUR collection:
Lest We Forget - Navy: Platinum Editions
Beautiful Navy Sheet
Commemorates sailors who fought for their country.
The sheet features 10 barbed wire stemmed Poppy stamps plus labels featuring dramatic images of Royal Navel ships in action.
We are thrilled as there will be a small number of sheets available signed by Alfred Raymond Lowe GC. He was born in London on 14th June 1931 and was awarded a GC for gallantry sea rescue at Portland Harbour, Weymouth on 17th October 1948. A Liberty ship heading for HMS Illustrious overturned and Lowe showed total disregard for his own safety to help other men. Unfortunately 29 of the 51 men onboard lost their lives.
ONLY For Club Members
We are not taking orders for this sheet, it will be reserved for members of our Sheet Clubs.
If you are in the Sheet Club, you will be contacted by Emma as usual to confirm what's reserved for you and as always, you are welcome to cancel or change the reservation.
Exceptionally Low Print Run
From May 2008, we introduced our "Platinum Edition" stamp sheets. These are our usual, incredible stamp sheets but with an exceptionally low print run.
ALL our sheets are investment-quality limited editions. ALL of them often sell out pre-release. So imagine how incredible these even stricter limited editions will be!
Priority on these sheets goes to members of our Sheets Clubs. If there are any left over, they will be offered to non-members but we suspect most of the time, you won't get a chance to own one at new issue price unless you join. You might find one on eBay later of course . . . . but history suggests the price will be crazy by then!
We are doing this to give yet another great benefit to our members of our Sheets Clubs and to thank them (you!) for their (your!) loyalty.
