Welcome to number 200

The 'Moist' LBE is appropriately the 200th official LBE.
The Moist stamp is another elegant example of the Emporium offering; the stamp is number 480.

I just noticed the poor quality of the printing on the right border... this was done deliberately, and it seems to affect all the sheets:
Letters are half erased, and we can read:
not :
"NEITHER RAIN NOR GLOOM OF NIGHT CAN STAY THESE MESSENGERS ABOUT THEIR DUTY"

But:
"NEITHER RAIN NOR GLO M OF NI T CAN STAY THESE MESSENGERS ABO T THEIR DUTY"

This is the leitmotiv of the Post Office Motto :lol:
2005: Emberellas/Post Office Motto (EDW0003-Aw)
2012: Emberellas/Post Early for Hogswatch (EHW0003-Dw)


Ps @ Steeljam: you wrote "MESSENGAERS" instead of "MESSENGERS" in the description of the sheet :wink:
