Fujeira Set

This set has everything! I already covered a couple of the stamps in earlier posts but I have now obtained the full set of mint stamps and I thought I would share them with you.

So why did I say this set had everything? Well, first of all, these are really nice, big, colourful stamps which are always an asset to a collection even though they are actually of low value.

But then, in this single set, I also get the Ancient Egyptian theme and my three principal topics: Queen Nefertiti, the Nubian Monuments and the Egyptian Earlies. OK, I admit that last one is a bit of a cheat because it's only commemorating the centenary of the first stamp but still...

So now for the details:
  • SG 57 Bust of Queen Nefertiti
  • SG 58 Colossi of Abu Simbel
  • SG 59 Tutankhamun's Mask
  • SG 60 Sphinx of Giza
  • SG 61 Statues of Prince Rahotep and his wife Princess Nofret
  • SG 62 Ancient Church
  • SG 63 Colonnade of the Great Temple of Isis at Philae
  • SG 64 Nile Sphinxes
  • SG 65 Pyramids of Giza

  • SG MS66 Mini Souvenir Sheet showing SG 64 and 65 as well as the Penny Black and the first Egyptian Stamp
