Ah, so today I have my work cut out for me as I have to get the new pages ready on Cyprus Stamps website for the 3 new stamp issues on 30 January (plus the reprint of the Cyprus Refugee stamp) as tomorrow they will be available for advance orders for those collectors who want them to be dispatched on the very first day of issue.
Collectors whe pre-order the new stamps also receive used stamps on their dispatched envelope along with the unique cancel mark for the release date.
The 3 new issues are:
- Centenary of the birth of Ethnarch Makarios III
- Cyprus Scouts Association Centenary
- The Cyprus Red Cross
Below are the official First Day Cover images (sample images) taken from the post office advance issue leaflet.
