I just found these "stamps???"

Image Not Found


Is there a catalog that lists them, do they have a value?


Many thanks for help

re: Are these stamps .

There are catalogues that list these cinderella items. They are collectable (I have quite a few myself). However there are those that look down on collectors of such material as about 95% of these islands are uninhabited and none of these "stamps" have any postal validity.

Many of those islands are animal/bird sanctuaries. Sales of the labels for the islands usually go to supporting the sanctuaries.

re: Are these stamps .

I get excited whenever I see references to the island of Staffa but sadly not when I see the labels.

Here's something I posted here some years ago (and repeated two years ago!):

"Staffa is a wonderful island but it is small and uninhabited, and not many tourists land there.

I saw it in 1974 at the age of 14 from the deck of the old paddle-steamer, the King George V. I remember vividly how impressed I was when I saw the memorial plaque on the ship recording her part in the rescue of the BEF from Dunkirk (75 years ago this week).

I also remember being excited seeing the basalt pillars on the island and the entrance to Fingal's cave.

Great memories."

I hope to see the island again but I'm afraid the labels were just another of Clive Feigenbaum's money-making schemes.

I believe he was also responsible for the Eynhallow issues.

Here's a quick biography of the man from Wikipedia:
