London 2010 (IV)

At last I could find the time to finish this series of posts related to my visit to the London 2010 stamp festival. For this last post I would like to share with you the souvenir I purchased on the booths of New Zealand and Australia posts.

To celebrate the stamp festival, New Zealand has issued a dedicated souvenir sheet. At the show I purchased the FDC of this souvenir sheet. Here it is.
The souvenir sheet contains three stamps issued from the ANZAC series issued on the 25th of April 2010 and that contains originally six stamps. The background of the sheet pictures the very famous Tower Bridge. In the top right corner you can see the logo of the London 2010 Stamp Festival. The souvenir sheet also pictures a stamp from 1915 representing George V and overprinted WAR STAMP.
On its side Australia did issue a presentation pack containing not one but four (!) souvenir sheets.

Here is the cover of the presentation pack and the four souvenir sheets that it contains.





Each souvenir sheet is overprinted in gold with the logo of the London 2010 stamp festival.
