Stamp Details

The stamps are self-adhesive, and the image of the dinosaur on each stamp extends beyond part of the perforation, which makes the dinosaurs appear to emerge from the cover. The commemorative cancel is from Lyme Regis in Dorset, UK, aka The Jurassic Coast, where many fossils are found.

The insert to the FDC provides details of these dinosaurs. Click the image below for easier reading.
