Received my order from Jersey Post, yesterday, of the new Superman set. The stamps fit nicely into my Unusual Stamps topical collection, with each of the 6 stamps and the souvenir sheet having some special feature. Here is a shot I took of the stamp that features a glow-in-the-dark message from Superman's father.

Other stamps feature bits of granite impregnated into the surface, heat sensitive ink that makes the earth appear when warmed, and the souvenir sheet is a lenticular picture that shows Superman taking off and flying across the sheet, though the execution on this one is sub-par, I think.

Here is a link to a YouTube clip I made showing the heat sensitive stamp.

re: Jersey Superman Stamps

@mdroth: 5 of the 6 stamps are lick-n-stick; one stamp is a self-adhesive, because the design and inscriptions are printed on a transparent background (shown here). Unfortunately, you can't appreciate that effect unless you "un-mint" the stamp.Big Grin

I get new issues regularly for PRC, Ireland, Lithuania, AAT/Cocos/Christmas, and Costa Rica. They are almost all lick-n-sticks.

Okay, YouTube has finished uploading my next video. This one shows Superman taking off in flight. The effect is not very pronounced. I've seen better movement in 1960s flicker cards.
