Coronation Street Collection Of 37 Genuine Local Stamps For Sale
1995 CollectionofCoronation Street GENUINE Postage Stamps
On offer here is a nice collection of Coronation Street memorabilia, especially for stamp collectors! These "Local Issue" stamps were issued in 1995 by five postal authorities of the United Kingdom (UK) as part of a joint Omnibus issue to commemorate the 35th Anniversary (1960-1995) of Coronation Street. The stamps are GENUINE and officially authorised by the islands, the Royal Mail and Granada Television. The stamps are Officially Catalogued in the Locals Issue Stamp Catalogues, such as the Phillips 2009 British Locals Philatelic Agency Catalogue (Vol.1, 4th Edition), who currentlyvalue these stamps in mint condition at more than €40. All of the stamps are illustrated below.
Other Coronation Street Stamp Minisheets are available in our Shop.
Weare also selling these stamps as individual WHOLESALE LOTS of 100 Stamps in our Shop.
PLEASE NOTE: The stamps are not valid for postage in mainland Britain unless the Royal Mail postage stamps are also applied. They were issued offshore and were only valid for delivery to the mainland Post Office, at which point the Royal Mail took responsibility for delivery. The postal rates for delivery to the mainland was double those of the UK, hence some of the higher value issues. The stamps are genuine, and listed in various stamp catalogues. They were issued primarily to support the boat services to the mainland and the community councils of the islands. They have also found popularity with visitors to the islands (who then use the postal service, e.g. for postcards; or for Corrie fans to collect - and help raise revenue for the islands) and stamp collectors worldwide.
And for those needing a Geography lesson, the five postal authorities are: DAVAAR - an island at the mouth of Campbeltown Loch in Kintyre Peninsular, Argyll; GAIRSAY lies at the Eastern end of Eynhallow Sound and at the northern exit of Wide Firth, Orkney; and Gugh Island, St. Mary's and St. Martin in the Scillies off Cornwall.
UK 1st CLASS P&P is 95p. Airmail (Europe) is £1.75. Airmail (World) is £2.25.
