Miniature Sheet[edit]

These stamps were originally printed and issued with a horizontal gutter between each pair.

It is reported that the Post Office in Abu Dhabi was unable to sell any like that, so they sold

each stamp separately. In the meantime, a small quantity of the joined pairs, had already been received and distributed to standing order customers in UK. So, if you have a gutter pair of these stamps, you should be feeling much better ! Vincent.
