Win the 1840 Set

To celebrate all sorts of good things but Philately in particular, we have come up with a fun stamp quiz! The prize is the world’s first set of stamps!

The deadline for entries is 4.30pm (UK time) on Tuesday 30th January to coincide with next week’s Sandafayre Hunters sale. Anyone getting all the answers correct will be entered into a draw, the first ‘out of the hat’ will win the pictured Great Britain 1840 Penny Black and Twopenny Blue.

It’s not as easy as it looks, but there are no ‘trick questions’ and you can enter up to 3 times. Simply send your answers to stamp@sandafayre.com and whether you are a customer or not we will be delighted to enter your 4 correct answers into the draw!

1) Which country does not put its name on its postage stamps?

2) Our homepage features 25 lots on the first page of images, how many of these lots include imperforate stamps (do not include covers in your answer)?

3) Our homepage features 25 lots on the first page of images, how many of these lots are from the British Empire (not Great Britain) and their basic design can be found issued BOTH with and without perforations during the 19th Century?

4) Our homepage features 25 lots on the first page of images, how many of these lots include British Empire stamps issued in the 19th Century which DO NOT feature a member of the British royal family?

That’s it! Good luck from everyone here at Sandafayre!
