They were only trial designs produced to act as test-prints on specimens sheets of gummed paper, hence I didn't make a fuss about them.

They will never exist as sheets but will be used for general decoration on envelopes.  

If you saw anything that you are really keen on give me a shout  :-)  



And to answer the original question - who has the rarer of the two Space stamp designs shown - there are only about 20 of each of those - so both pretty rare!


Happiness doesn't come from getting something we don't have, but through recognising and appreciating what we do have.

I purchased these sheets a while ago but only recently discovered precisely what they were and the story is very interesting. Back in 1961 a science fiction project was begun in Germany in the form of a weekly magazine called Perry Rhodan. Effectively a chapter a week in an epic series that continues to this day more than 2,900 issues later. It is the biggest science fiction project ever.
   It begins with the first moon landing, then projected to be in 1971, with US Space Force Major Perry Rhodan and his crew who discover a marooned space ship from the planet Arkon. By appropriating technology from the space ship Earth takes its place in the galaxy.
   After disputes only about the first 18 years of work has ever been published in English.

   The stamps were produced in 1972 and feature main characters from the series, Bully on the 5 soli, Gucky on the 7 soli, Atlan on the 19 soli and Perry on the 23 soli. I'll show the sheets over 4 scan.
