I am waiting to see the overprints. Nice to see the idea resurrected as a follow-up to the Zlobenian overprint on the 50B Bad Blintzs from all those years ago.

I'm not sure I've seen these as it was before I started collecting - can you post pics at all?

I got my LBE's and sheets today...
Very nice: The military overprints are good, (but not too good to be beyond miltech), and the two stamps are well designed, the 2 Zloty feels quite at home next to the old 1 Zloty issue, and the Borogravian 3 Penny is fully appropriate for a country, (and a god), who has a lot to say and a proud history to be err... proud of!

I found a sport of the 3 P Borogravian, a 3p Thieves guild coin sport, a 50P Lawyers guild sport, and a 4P Vetinari V sport, along with a Dead Letter stamp. Not a bad haul at all! :D

I also love the new small mailing stickers!
I've seen three so far: "Igor 2 Igor" (this way up), "Special Delivery AMPO" (with the postmasters golden hat of office), and "Alchemists Guild - Handle with care"
They are circular, printed in colour on a clear backing, and are about 3 cm in diameter. I hope that they, ( and perhaps others), will be on sale soon?

I also note the borogravian overprint of the 2 Zloty is somewhat short of something... Perhaps an obscure homage to all the fine army horses lost to the stew-pots of many campaigns. I won't give the game away yet but I suspect some military clerk is on for a bit of a fizzer!

Ok, something very weird is going on with the post in NW London this week - I haven't had any post since Monday and now two separate Royal Mail postman have just delivered mail within the space of 10 minutes - has there been a secret 1 day strike or something?

BUT my LBEs have arrived :D but have to finish watering the garden before I can open them :roll:

Has no one spotted the "discontinuity" in the Borogravia overprint yet?

Gee whizz, Charles
Do you mean the Borogravia Zlobenia 2z overprint or the Zlobenia Bororavia 1p overprint?

Can you post a pic, Charles? I can't see anything odd with the overprints that I got in my LBEs :?

Have you got a sport overprint? Or even a sport stamp with a sport overprint?

It is not a matter of a sport as a short. What is the name of the country?
