Description:

I wouldn't miss this one if it disappeared from the face of the earth. They seem to pop up by their dozens everywhere.

I consider the original set boring, but this even more so - plus everyone and their mother seem to have a copy (as there was a buying frenzy at the time and it was purchased as a speculative "investment") and tries to flog it for £10 as "Rare." I think even Stanley Gibbons is being optimistic by pricing all 12 million of them at 30p a piece.

The only people who won from these was the Post Office; 4d is worth the equivalent of £0.29 today, and these rarely make a tenth of that!
