While wombats poop cubes, do skunks poop triangles?

A delay in perforating. It was considered better to release the LBEs then the sheets later.
Anyway, it will be lots of fun trying to discover the sports.

I thought it was policy for the past few years to release the sheets about a week after the AMPO definitives appear in LBEs.
Last year's post thread with same question.

So they are finally out! And looking good!
Just a couple of points... The 10P sheet of 16 stamps at 0.90 each should come to £14.40 not £18.00, and the TOA sheet of 7 stamps at £1.10 should come to £7.70 not £8.80... Unless my maths has failed me or I've misunderstood the pricing policy. (Mind you, by that calculation the 1P sheet of 30 at 35P would have to go up to £10.50)
I've often wondered why a slightly discounted price wasn't offered for a full set of the sheets. Perhaps (as they are currently priced) a full set might be offered at the bargain price of £75 instead of £78.60.
Of course this would only have been practicable for the last couple of years as previously the 50p sheet came out later than the rest.
I can only conclude that I'm paying off Karma at a vastly accelerated rate.

Methinks Librarian's Apprentice alludes to the fact that the Incontrovertible Skunk 2p went directly into the "Endangered Stamps" list - where it is still listed as "New".

Hello folks,

The 2p was allocated to both new stamps and endangered - apologies.
For ease of listing during times where there are multiple products to list (which takes quite a bit of time) I usually duplicate existing listings so i have a skeleton of pre-programmed product details to go from.

Occasionally amendments don't save or I forget to change details!

If ever these little blips are noticed please report it to us directly via the contact form or email me via reb@discworldemporium.com so that we can sort it out - we can only fix problems if we know about 'em!

All the best & happy stamping!
