HI !

Here are new stamps from Isle of Man featuring  Newspaper  headlines of some important events  of the last few decades. The stamps are unique with an unusual theme and could be used in different Thematic Collections.

Isle of Man Post Office joined forces with The Times (of London) during their 225th anniversary year to celebrate many of the most momentous news stories making the headlines over the years. In the spirit of information sharing Isle of Man’s stamps feature a micro text panel telling the story of each historic event.
