20 Different Torch Relay FDC
Before the Olympics were held in London in 2012, they ran the Olympic Torch all over the country to get as many people as possible involved. Mercury issued a series of covers for each town the torch entered. Each
cover has a full colour photograph of the place such as Aberystwyth, Belfast, and Taunton. There is also a special First Class stamp on each cover. The stamp alone would cost 67p today. We have twenty (20) different covers, where they are from will vary, but all 20 will be different. A nice souvenir of the Olympics. From what we understand they were issued at about £3.50 a cover, which means the 20 covers would have cost about £70.00. If you buy it from us, you'll get 20 different full colour covers with first class stamps, not for the £70.00 but for only £15.00. That works out to just 75p a cover just over the cost of the First Class Stamp.
