Disobedience for Sunday Stamps

Collage sent by Alan.




On the reverse, a (sadly disfigured by biro) 47p World Heritage stamp issued in 2015 of Blenheim Palace, which has a garden designed by Capability Brown. Not so obvious from the view on the stamp, I have to say (so really forcing the theme this week's Sunday Stamps). In 2016 a stamp was issued as part of a set Brown's work at Blenheim, which I do not have, but have shown below).






Plus a bonus 'stamp' from Adanaland promoting the 'National Hedge Fund'.

  2. I stared for longer than usual at that cancellation for the stamps ... weird that it's done like that. :( Beautiful stamps though!

  3. The two stamps showing Blenheim Palace are superb.

    1. I wonder if Blenheim would get the amount of attention it does if it hadn't been the birthplace of Churchill?

  4. That is my favourite from the capability brown set. I must have missed the world heritage set because I haven't seen that one, good you have a card in better condition than the stamp.

  5. I think any postal clerk who defaces stamps in this way should be forced to issue replacements!!
