We regularly produce our own “Graham Land” Cinderella labels which we affix to the back of mail that we send out to customers, and cancel with a special “Graham Land – Fantasy Post” handstamp.
Our online shop sells more Lundy stamps than anything else, so we’re delighted that our set of Graham Land Cinderellas for 2021 is celebrating “Lundy Landscapes”. We hope to raise awareness not just of what our shop offers, but also of the fascinating and beautiful island that inspires so many philatelists to collect Lundy stamps.
As usual, most of these labels will end up used on customer orders, but customers who wish to purchase a single unmounted mint set can do so for just £2 – a low price designed to cover the design and printing costs.
About the issue
Issued on 8 April 2021, the set consists of five stamps in a se-tenant strip, denominated in our usual fictional currency of “grahams” (g):
- 23g: Postbox on Lundy
- 29g: The Old Light, Lundy
- 33g: Puffin on Lundy
- 49g: St Helen’s Church, Lundy
- 75g: Coastline of Lundy.
The initial print run is 40 sheets, with each sheet comprising three complete sets. The total number of sets produced to date is therefore 120.
Lundy enthusiasts may spot that the denominations we have used are a nod to the 1992 Discover Lundy issue – one of our favourite Lundy issues, but also one of the hardest to get hold of!
