Earlier in the year Royal Mail issued a set of stamps commemorating a variety of Classic Album Covers including The Division Bell by Pink Floyd. This particular stamp was subsequently selected to feature in a Miniature Sheet with 10 examples of the stamp, the lyrics of the song and the suggestion of an LP sliding out of the right hand side. This is a highly unusual addition to the stamp calendar and even more unusually Royal Mail provided NO FIRST DAY COVER facilities whatsoever leaving thousands of collectors with a serious gap in their collection. This probably has everything to do with the unusual dimensions of the sheet.
The 6th March date of release - clearly visible on the postmark - is no coincidence. Fans of the band will immediately recognise it as Dave Gilmour's birthday. Maybe the powers that be at Royal Mail are fans as well!
We have produced two different items; both are Limited Editions of just 250 examples.
- The first is a sheetlet of 10 mounted onto our own Limited Edition design presentation card showing Big Ben at the right and individually numbered at the foot. This is available for £19.99 plus £2 UK P&P.
- The second item is a single stamp mounted onto the same card, as per the image dislayed, with one of the alternative officially sponsored postmarks affixing the stamp to the card. This too is a Limited Edition of just 250 and is available for £9.99 plus £2 UK P&P.
UK Customers may purchase both for £29.90 POST-FREE and EU/Worldwide customers may also buy both for just the one postage cost.
Worldwide delivery is charged at cost when we process your order which will be £5 for up to 2 of these items. If you missed out on our previous official licensed First Day Cover featuring artwork from the album and a promotion picture of the band, in addition to a specially produced postmark, whilst stocks last, these can also be included on your order with no additional shipping costs.
Please make your selection from the 'product variation' list below.
N.B.The unique number dedicated to your cover will be totally randomised within the total edition; low numbers could be the first or last ordered. The images shown are a working representation and postmark positioning/sizing may vary.
