I think it would have been more appropriate for the Pyramid stamp to be Three Drachmas

I am waiting for mine to arrive. Are they really 3D or is it all just an illusion? :wink:

The paper swells when you moisten the gum.

Well, my order arrived and I have taken steps to tsort through them.
I am worried that those clever people at the Emporium are starting one of those pyramid schemes. Be careful not to send them money.

:lol:

Indeed so, for Mr Pearson is most skilled in separating us from our cash! :wink:
I have noticed some colour variants - both in the LBE stickers and the Pyramid stamp. For the LBE stickers, there are some that are distinctly blue of hue, but others that have a much greener tinge. For the Pyramid stamp - I have three that are an olive brown and one that is brown brown. It's a cunning plan, I tell you.

I'm sure I'm not the first to notice it, but I can't find it anywhere: The selvedge on the 1 D stamps is labelled The year of the backwards facing Artichoke, although the stamp was released in TYOT justifiably defensive Lobster. (As it also says on the half d stamps, at least the ones I have).

My sheet is the same.

There are a few sheets like this. Basically, the sheet was printed in one year and issued in the following year.

Has everybody forgotten The Apprentice's post last December? Read the fourth paragraph.

Hi Anne- Ian from The Emporium posted on the Forum late last year that they'd been so busy last year that they hadn't been able to release all the stamps & sheets that they'd had made, and did we mind if they released them early this year instead. If I recall, the general response was "gimme, gimme, gimme!" :D

I'm not complaining at all. I was just wondering why it hadn't been commented on. The fact that Ian warned about it explains that very well. (And I'll be hanging on to stamps with selvage text just in case there is an updated reprint later).
