I have just listed on ebay some new Dead Letter Office stamps.

There are two issues - the 'Hand of Fate' and a resurrection of the original 'Grim Reaper' stamp issued in 2009 - but smaller and in a deep dark blue as I always felt the original was a bit too large and label-like.

I couldn't decide on a colourway for the Hand of Fate so we have ended up with the three most commonly associated with Halloween - orange, purple and green. However, if you buy all 3 sheets you will get a FREE additional mixed sheet.

Both issues have variant stamps.


Also for sale are Mixed Bags containing some RANDOM previous issues in adition to the new issues, including the Death of Stamps series, the original 2009 Grim Reaper stamps, some variant pairs and tete-beche pairs of the new issues and some stamps cancelled with the 'Halloween' and Dead Letter Office' marks, plus some of those Wyrd Byrd Halloween stamps that everyone seemed to like so much. There is an average of 10 stamps in each bag, there won't be many bags as I do not have many of the older stamps left - when they are gone they are gone!   

And a colour test set of the Grim Reaper Resurrection, printed on the gummed paper but imperforate. However I have perforated and split some of the stamps from this sheet and they are included in the mixed bags.

I still haven't got the hang of the postage costs setup on ebay - I have tried to set it so that it only charges once regardless of how many items are bought but it has defeated me again. But fear not I will refund any overspend via Paypal, you shouldn't have to pay more than £2.65 for the recorded P&P, or £8.50 for overseas tracked.

I hope you like the stamps and as always if you have any queries please PM me.  Don't forget that any comments made in this thread are removed after 30 days...   Wink

PS - the first batch of Mixed Bags sold quicker than I was expecting so have added the rest now...

I have received my order and am well pleaed. Always great to have some new stamps from Colin, especially when there are the mixed bags attached too. I am still going through the contents of the 'bag', but have found new items regarding the Death of Stamps issues.

I would be interested in hearing what others have found in their mixed bags, as I am still trying to list all of Colin's issues. The Death of Stamps 'set' never got a full issue, and originally appeared imperforate on mailings, so there is likely to be some I have not yet come across. The re are a number of colour alternative, and have just noticed that the text in the bottom banner can be in different typefaces. What other variation lurk out there? And now some Halloween perfins too!
I will be offering some trades lateron the appropriate Forum page - once I have decided what I have actually got spare.

btw, has anybody spotted a variant on the Hand of Fate stamps yet. I haven't but they are likely to be quite subtle.
