2006 GB - DX36 - Isambard Kingdom Brunel (£7.50)


Issued 23.02.2006.

Prestige Stamp Booklet issued to commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the birth of probably the greatest engineer of all time, Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

Contains four stamp panes in unique se-tenant combinations, including definitives, Ocean Liners 68p stamps and "Brunel" commemoratives.

Pane 1: 1st Class, 42p and 68p stamps from the Brunel issue. Background is the Thames Tunnel.

Pane 2: 40p, 60p and 47p stamps from the Brunel issue. Background is Treviddo Viaduct.

Pane 3: 47p Brunel stamp and two of the 68p Ocean Liners SS Great Western values. These are different from the 2004 set as they are printed in Litho by Enschedé rather than Walsall Gravure as the normal stamps were. They have their own catalogue number SG2614. This pane also represents a "first" in that the stamps on it are not se-tenant. Background shows the Great Eastern under construction.

Pane 4: Mixed Machin Pane - four x 1st Class, and two each of 35p and 40p values. Background shows the Royal Albert (Saltash) Railway Bridge.
