At the request of Ernie (ernieinjax), who contacted me about my posting of the GB £10 Britannia high value issue of 1993, I'm adding a few other images. Firstly one of the numerous designs of first day covers for the 150th anniversary of the Penny Black issued in 1990:

Secondly, the miniature sheet itself:

Here's the reverse of the pack (stock sheet) with all the details

Finally, another image of the 1993 high value definitive in a mint block of four:

These where additionally 'embossed' with the Braille characters for 'TEN' and printed on granite paper incorporating small coloured threads.

Hope you like them Ernie!

Thanks for posting the 'sea horses'. Very apt. I had completely forgotten about those.

That, my friend, is an amazing stamp! I do not think I have seen a better copy.

Bobby, thank you sir. I bought it at the Argyll Etkin auction in London in October 2014. Now on the hunt for a £1 green, SG 403.
