Which one is the 400th stamp?
Are they 400, 401, 402 and 403?

There is precedent here and here among others.
After the problems I with the Summer/Winter and Spring/Autumn stamps, I decided to give the same number to stamps that appear on the same sheet.

More to the point we were promised the 400th stamp and we don't know which one it is. :(

Mind you I do like the 4 stamps even if it makes getting the sports more difficult. :)

My vote would be with Cori Celesti being the 400th as (a) it's the first one in the sequence and (b) it is the home of the gods and I've heard they can be a bit a vengeful when slighted and I've got enough healthy problems as it is without random lightening strikes and errant body parts dropping off . . . :wink:
