    Omission of Royal Cypher on Gummed Values

    The Isle of Man Post Office very much regrets that the entire supply of ‘The Life of Bees’ issue in sheets with normal gum has been printed with the Royal cypher omitted: the error affects all six values.

    The error does not affect the self-adhesive version of the stamps printed as a sheetlet which was produced by a different process.

    Philatelic products had already been prepared using stamps with the error: these will remain on sale until stocks are exhausted or the planned withdrawal date of the 31st December 2024 is reached.

    Customers who have received the incorrect stamps may, if they wish, return these for a full refund.

    This is an abridged version of the 'Omission of Royal Cypher on Gummed Values' Statement. To see the full statement please click here
