New Issues: 2015 (Part Seven)

I was in Dublin last week and obtained the final stamps issued in 2015. image

One stamp commemorates Saint Columban but the other three are Christmas issues.

The small stamp (national rate €0.70) is only available in booklets. The Philatelic Shop at the General Post Office sells them as a pair…a service to Collectors.

The other stamps are “Stamps on a Roll” (SOAR) and available in any value. The Post Office clerk simply prints out the required stamp…national or airmail or a small amount to make up postage and also depending on weight and size of package.

Again the Philatelic Shop sells these stamps as a pair.

The stamps above are “mint”. I have received the second set of these stamps I posted in Dublin.
