Its a real corner but not from the sheets of 15 standard + 1 variant. There would have been a sheet of mixed variants and standards stamps with that text on the selvedge


@elmstead: I read you, but not well enough. Sorry. Embarrassed
As you were not talking about the text of the horizontal selvage in your description (which might be "Laernu" in the top right part and the bottom right part), nor of the text part "© 2020" for the vertical selvage of the bottom right corner, I thought it was missing text information.
This, of course, if the selvages of the mixed variant sheet are identical to those of the sheet of 15 standard + 1 variant, and taking into account that the sizes of the 2 types of sheets can be different.

@Steve: The account I made for your discovered stamps was good or was I wrong? Do you have 7 or 6 diffrents stamps in the loose pairs? (not counting the early bird)
Don't be surprised by my question, and please forgive me, your reasoning is certainly very clear, but English is not my native language ... so I'm a bit lost Confused

sorry about the quality of the image I had to use my old iPad

but this is the sheet that I think we could piece together once everyone has their stamps

I deliberately cropped out the central images so I didn't give away the variants
(the Lower Horizontal strips of the bottom two stamps are both blank)

Interesting, the selvage text is on the height of 3 stamps ... for the normal sheet it is on the height of 4 stamps ...

and to answer Jerakeen....

I don't have the Top Right corner, only the Lower right corner, so the sheet could be larger than 3 stamps tall

and

I think there are four variants and the standard stamp (where the variation is in the central image)
There is also an inverted stamp (the Bonus stamp minisheet contains this)
So, all six stamps appear in the pairs of stamps and single stamps contained in the "bags of stamps"available on Ebay.(use the search terms Learnu or Isle of Vue)

However, there is a seventh stamp "the Early bird" which appears to be a colour variation of the standard stamp
and I was asking if anyone had found this Early bird stamp in their "bags of stamps" (I so want to type LBE) and so far it appears the answer is "No"

Dear Perky I can't see why you weren't able to buy Colin's stamps

The stamps, artwork first day cover and special delivery package are all available on Ebay.
just put in the search term Isle of Vue or Learnu

So this is why we are trying not to spoil the surprise for everyone waiting for their stamps and those who haven't spotted the variants.

I should have explained, I lost my job just after Christmas so am trying to limit my spending  Embarrassed

Hopefully something will come up soon but in the meanime I am house, baby and pet-sitting!

Back behind a desk now, perhaps the only beneficiary of Coronavirus!

Don't let my personal problems affect anything here, I am sure everyone who bought them in february has their stamps by now and my own will not be far away   Big smile
