A magnificent Customised Stamp Sheet celebrating the 70th anniversary of the LNER steam locomotive 'Mallard' setting the still-unbroken world steam speed record of 126mph on 3rd July 1938. The sheet comprises ten Union Flag definitives with a large label depicting 'Mallard' in all her glory. The background repeats this image together with the coat of arms of the London and North Eastern Railway - the company which built 'Mallard' to the design of Nigel Gresley. This superb sheet is produced in a numbered limited edition of just 750, considerably enhancing its collectability. VERY FEW NOW REMAINING
