Issued to celebrate the 900th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, the set of stamps, designed by David Gentleman are based on scenes from the Bayeux Tapestry. The 4d stamps were printed in se-tenant strips of 6 stamps, in sheets of 120.
Each pair of cufflinks is presented in a black hinged cufflink box, with information about the stamp, plus another whole stamp in the cufflink lid.
The stamps are set into high quality silver coloured, nickel plated cufflinks (brass base), with hard wearing swivel barrel fittings. They are then covered with a crystal clear resin dome that magnifies and protects the image, making them durable and scratchproof. Cufflink diameter, 20mm, stamp insert diameter 18mm x 18mm square. The stamps used are mint condition.
