I was honoured to receive a set of the new definitive sheets. These, together with the commons have been uploaded to the Stamp Catalogue.

Just had a look on Steve's catalogue at the sheets and I reckon that in the Patrician sport, the Patrician is sporting Skunk stripes! :D
On the 5 pence, Morporkia has a pet Incontrovertible Skunk on her lap (R3, C4)
On the 50 pence Cabbage Field (R3, C2) there's another of those Incontrovertible Skunks rummage around the cabbage patch - you can see the little bugger's tail poking out the cabbages


Buggered if I can find the sport on the 1/2 penny PO stamp though!

I'm with you on that one. Has it actually got a sport?

1p Patrician has hair extensions R1

10p Cape is missing markings (flowers?) I think we have had this before.
TOA Skunk falling to the left of the tower, Perfs top and bottom so on a separate sheet.

In 2 LBEs I had 2 I/2p definitives but cannot see any differences.

The Patrician is wearing a wig?! :shock: :shock: :shock:


Do be surprised at such ideas. Do not forget that HV was thought to touch up his hair coloure, hence the Eminence Gris stamps from many a year ago. Vanity may be one of his traits.

It could be Vetinari's pet skunk sleeping under his hat.

Do we have a costing for the full set of this years definitive sheets yet? It would be handy to know how much I've got to save up. :D

I would take last year's individual stamp costs, and multiply by this year's numbers per sheet. Won't be far off.
