The green Susan sport, I believe that some are as part of a tete-a-tete pair. Not dure of the split between singles and pairs though.

I think you probably mean a Tête-bêche pair? Unless they were gossiping when they got together of course ;)

Not Discworld.
Basically it is a sticker, not even a Cinderella stamp.

yet issued in the year of the Pensive Hare
and emanting from No 41and described as "a stamp".

Yes there are grey areas, and this may be poles apart from DW stamps.
But this is a discussion on rarity rather than inclusion in the catalogue

Here’s a list of the rarest of the rare. These stamps represent the "Holy Grail Quest" of Flataly, and if ever located on the open market are likely to be the most expensive items to buy. I’ve done my best to research the rarity of these stamps and give the best available estimate of the number that were released or subsequently escaped from the Emporium. If any of you know better, or can provide a more accurate estimate, Please PM me or comment on the thread. Likewise please remind me of any of the rarest stamps or labels that I might have forgotten. Though there are many other very rare Discworld stamps I’m really concentrating on stamps of which only 100 or fewer are thought to exist. There may be instances of sheets of some of these stamps in some very lucky or well connected peoples collections, but as these sheets are extremely unlikely to ever be split up I am ignoring them for the purposes of this list. I am also ignoring stamps that have only ever been available affixed to covers. The Old hands on the forum will be aware of these, and probably several other rarities that I've forgotten. This list is really for the benefit of comparative newcomers to the world of Flataly.


The list is meant to include stamps and labels.

Speaking of labels there were Colins freebies which I think will be extremely rare, The Patricians, Tsort & Ptasp etc...

I doubt anyone even Colin could even guess as to how many of these were sent out.

Fair enough, but if I had one I'd remember which :wink:
