Prestige stamp books

The first book was published on 24 May 1972 with the release of a £1 book of stamps entitled ‘The Story of Wedgwood’. It was not until a £3 book was released on 16 April 1980, also entitled ‘The Story of Wedgwood’, that the book size was standardised.  However, when barcoded definitives were issued the book size had to be increased in height to house the new stamp size.

PANES FROM Prestige STAMP books

Each Prestige Stamp Book includes 4 or 5 panes of stamps. These can be definitive or commemorative stamps, or a combination of the two. Some stamps are self-adhesive, usually containing the definitive and miniature sheet stamps, however, most are still gummed.
