New Zealand is home to Middle-earth once again, with the release of the first of three films based on The Hobbit. To mark this moment in cinematic history, New Zealand Post has issued official stamps from Middle-earth.
Now you have the chance to own ALL the official stamps in a unique Presentation Pack, which also includes a First Day Cover that has been exclusively hand-stamped with the date of the Royal Premiere here in the UK.
Included in the pack are six stunning miniature sheets portraying actual scenes from the film, as well as a 6v strip of the stamps. It also features a collectable First Day Cover postmarked on the first day of issue.
What’s more, New Zealand Post has authorised an additional handstamp to be applied to 950 of the First Day Covers. Dated 12th December 2012 – the day of the Royal Premiere here in the UK - only 950 sets will contain a cover with the exclusive Royal Premiere edition.
The presentation pack is a piece of cinematic history and a unique memento for fans and collectors alike. It’s also a great way to learn more about the characters featured on the stamps (Bilbo Baggins, Gollum, Gandalf, Thorin Oakenshield, Radagast and Elrond).
Makes a great gift and is destined to be a highly sought-after collectable for years to come!
