These Crown-Sized (38mm) Euro Pattern pieces were struck in 1996 by the Internation Currency Bureau. They were how they imagined the new Euro coins might look. This Squirrel 25 Euro Pattern was issued for Ireland and on one side you have the Irish harp and on the other a squirrel eating a nut with a forest in the background with the country name in Gaelic as Eire and the date 1997. They were stuck in gilding metal which looks like gold but they are much more affordable.

10 Different Early First Day Covers

We recently bought a stamp dealer out of all the older First Day Covers (FDC) that he had in stock and there were thousands of them. They date from the 1960’s and 1970’s with an occasional cover from the 1980’s. But we made sure that each cover had more than one commemorative stamp on them and many of the covers have as many as four different stamps on them. Each cover has a cache on it and it was cancelled on the first day that the stamps were issued. We are bundling them into groups of ten different covers, each with more than one stamp on each and we are going to offer them at just £9.50 a bundle. That works out to less than £1.00 a cover and these are older covers. Each bundle will be different and no one knows which covers you will get, but at only 95p each we think they are very interesting.
