Northern Ireland


  1. That's funny! A funny way to express the Northern Ireland's historical anger towards UK...
    Sock-on-the-nose postmark...
    But the stamps are issued by Royal Mail, from England/UK. Northern Ireland does not have postal autonomy in issuing stamps, right?

  2. You're right! NI hasn't the right to issue own stamps. The postmarks are indeed placed on a funny way, directly at the Queen's face.
    There are definatives for Northern Ireland and a miniature sheet where issued last year too.
