Issue Information

Come to the Show Strip
Sheetlet of 10

Come to the Show Strip
Stamp from sheetlet

This sheetlet produces a new specialised stamp. Printed by RA Printing for the first time, this is also the first time the 60c Southern Cross stamp appears with a tab. The stamps in this sheetlet are slightly lighter than the sheet stamps, but until I have examined more sheetlets, I believe this shade difference is due to the lithographic process.

Issue Date: 19 July 2010 (at least one post office was selling this on 14 July 2010) (more information)
Printer: RA Printing (more information)
Printing Process: Lithography (more information)
Gum: Ordinary gum
Paper: Tullis Russell (incorporating phosphor) (more information)
Issued In: Sheetlet of 10 (2 x 5 with attached tabs) (more information)
