For the true collector of stamps we are thrilled to present this very special, limited edition uncut self adhesive printer's sheet. This pane is individually numbered as a limited edition of 100 and comes complete with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The sheet is exactly what rolls off the printer's press and foiling machines, with the colour bars and grip left in place.

This self-adhesive pane features four full sets of 100 Years of the RAF Issue and is available in mint condition or CTO.
This is an incredibly unique gift and with only 100 available it really is something to treasure.
Whether you are an aviation or military enthusiast, or simply a collector of the finest, this truly is a prized collectable.
The stamps featured on this printer's pane feature more than just the chosen aircraft; on each stamp you will also find: the name of the aircraft, a medal ribbon and medal initials, the RAF Ensign, the name of an important person associated with the Royal Air Force, the name of an RAF base and the GPS coordinates of the airfield. These additional features are included to add texture and depth to the stamps and to reflect the wealth of information that 100 years of history of the world's greatest air force has to offer. We hope they will be of interest to serving and former personnel alike.
Some of the additional details in our stamps are so tiny that you will need to magnify the stamps to see them, but one further tribute awaits; printed in security ink, visible only under UV light, the sonnet High Flight by John Gillespie Magee appears on the stamp, not in lettering, but in Morse code. Magee was an Anglo-American officer pilot in the Royal Canadian Air Force; he died at the young age of nineteen while training. His famous sonnet was written shortly before his death and is a worldwide favourite of aviators and astronauts. To see the poem, shine a UV light on the stamps and if your Morse is a little rusty, perhaps use an online translator to read it.
