I thought (maybe wrongly) that only the Queen's portrait can appear on UK stamps. :loco

Glad that Capt. Lorca made the cut. Surprised not to see Capt. Pike.

Yes that is an oversight.

Thanks for this Anniemouse.

Helen, you can see there is a tiny silhouette of the Queen's head on the stamps as well.

In the 1960s when Tony Benn was Postmaster General he tried to remove the Queen's head altogether, but the compromise of the small silhouette was agreed on for all special commemorative stamps.

Thanks, Servalan. So much for my eyesight. Couldn't make out that the white splotch was Her Majesty. :roll:

My framed stamps have arrived and they look wonderful. Very well packaged and larger than I expected. I am so pleased with them. Would love to get them signed by Jason one day.
