SNAPO are pleased to announce their latest joint issue, this time with Britain's Royal Mail... sorry, Consignia... sorry, the name's probably changed again by now but they haven't told us the new name, for some reason.
The subject this time is the famous portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin. The SNAPO has issued a stamp in this celebrated design, with the only adulterations being the addition of an unobtrusive SNA above the figures of value (3 Pesetas), and a rendition of our national symbol, the noble Fennec.
SNAPO are advised that the Royal Whateveryoucallit's contribution to this
issue is the first ever issue of the Machin type with corner letters, as
seen on over fifty years' history of British stamps, from the famous Penny
Black of 1840 to the annoyingly expensive £1 green of 1891. The corner
letters chosen for this issue are the letters D G A M, in honour of
Douglas Myall, a well known contributor to the study of Machinology.
Note: These are the only modern SNA issues with values in Pesetas. The permanent conversion rate is equal to a well known terrestrial constant:
€$ 1.00 = Pesetas 9.81
