Mathews Miniature Sheets


I now have lots of  spare time on my hands, so what an opportunity to spend some of it selling my surplus material. Below is the first on offer. Over the coming days and weeks there will be several more. All material for sale is virus free and post office fresh.


I have a few of these for sale so if you missed out on the issue or need another copy get in touch. gbmachins@gmail.com

The Royal Mail celebrated Stamp show 2000 in May 2000. This miniature sheet featuring eight stamps illustrating the colour palate of designer Jeffery Mathews was issued for the occasion.
Mathews colour Palate was started  in 1984 provisionally to return stamps to the original concept of a lighter tone for the head on a solid background. The eight stamps depicted are from his palate. It also has two labels.

The upper label shows the shield and crest of the post office whilst the lower is a visual pun of his palate showing the eight colours of the stamps depicted along with a monogram of his initials - JM. The sheet was printed by De La Rue Security Printers.

I am trying to keep the price realistic, The asking price £4.49 each + postage with protected stiff packing.

£1.00p UK
£1.70p  Europe
£2.00p World Zones 1 & 2

Just email me with your postal address, this will secure them. I will send you details of how to pay via pay pal by return email.

Thank you for looking.
