Stamps featuring the flags of the sixteen different U.N. Member Nations were produced each year until all countries had been represented. These stamps are true miniaturized versions of each flag. The colors, designs, and even the actual proportions of every flag are faithfully reproduced, making this series a particularly interesting one.
What's a Proofcard?
Limited-Edition Fleetwood Proof Cards bring all the best elements of stamp collecting together. They’re historic keepsakes showing when and where a stamp is issued – philatelic souvenirs that can never be duplicated.
The eye-catching design on the top of the card is known as a cachet. It features historical prints and photos as well as artwork created by world-renowned artists, making collecting them more fun.
The reverse side of the card is filled with interesting background information you’ll enjoy discovering.
Another neat feature is the cancellations. Traditional cancellations are used to mark postage stamps to prevent their reuse. Official First Day cancellations have two parts – a date stamp indicating the date and site where the stamp was released and cancellation bars with the “First Day of Issue” slogan between them. Often the date and location of the cancellation are connected to the stamp topic, adding extra meaning to your proof card.
