.Long postcard used with special Falklands War Anniversary hand stamp 

This is the expensive signed version. I have seen copies sell for anywhere between £80 and £195 (so it is worth shopping around a bit - but it is getting harder to source as time moves on, and the price is never going to come down on these).

The other four signed versions, that I know of, are mounted in my display and can be seen on an earlier page Tab

Cover with real Falkland Islands coins encapsulated in it. 

 

 

This book was clearly printed before the Falklands war. They therefore had to place an update re the war on it because of the loss of several of the ships depicted within it. It was this front applied sticker that caught my eye.

Stamp Sheets Set

 

This is a lovely set, but one which has become quite expensive to obtain now. I was unaware of these for many years and only found out about them through a search I did on eBay when a set came up for sale, I had known about the individual stamps, but these stamp sheets I had not previously seen.
