WE WILL ALSO be offering occasional The Lord of the Rings First Day Miniature Sheet Covers, regular First Day Covers, Postcards, Stamps Booklets and Presentation Packs - please contact us to purchase or check our regular auctions. As these stamps were only on sale in New Zealand and sold out earlier than anticipated supply is restricted to that on hand - don’t delay too long or you may be disappointed. They've already become increasingly desirable, scarce and expensive as more The Lord of the Rings fans and collectors discover them.
