WASHINGTON (CBS4) – Stamp collectors are getting into the Royal Wedding too. Britain’s Royal Mail issued special stamps for the wedding and American postal authorities are offering them as part of a commemorative packet.
The British stamps can’t be used on mail in this country, but collectors wouldn’t be doing that anyway.
The Royal Wedding Presentation Pack sells for $7.95. It includes a miniature set of the stamps, which feature two official engagement photos of Prince William and Kate Middleton, and a brochure with color photos and the story of how the couple met
Also available are the commemorative stamp sheet alone or an envelope with some of the stamps and a special postmark. They’re sold through www.usps.com/shop or by calling 800-782-6724.
