On 7th January 2010, Royal Mail issued a set of stamps commemorating Classic Album Covers and the Rolling Stones Let It Bleed album was one of the 10 featured. With great pleasure, we have worked with Abkco and produced this officially licensed First Day Cover dedicated to commemorating this iconic album.
The cover is a strictly limited edition of just 2500 and is available in 3 variations, with each individually numbered on the reverse.
The variation offered here is the 10 stamp version of the cover which has 10 x Let It Bleed stamps with each cancelled by the exclusive single day of use red 'Lips' postmark. As well as the cover, we designed this official postmark which is fully approved by both Abkco records and Royal Mail. It is dated 07/01/2010, the release date of the Classic Album Covers stamps, with the postal address of 'Olympic Studios, London, SW3' where the album was recorded. The reverse of the cover, in addition to being individually numbered within the 2,500 total of covers produced, also features a picture of the reverse of the album cover and some background text.
This limited edition official collectable piece is priced at just £20.
The other 2 variations differ by including either 10 of the Classic Album stamps or a single Let It bleed stamp and are priced at £29.99 and £10 respectively.
The unique number dedicated to your cover will be totally randomised within the total edition; low numbers could be the first or last ordered.
