Ideal for mounting or even picture framing, we offer sets of six Return of the King sheets of 25 gummed stamps each featuring key characters issued to commemorate director Peter Jackson’s highly successful films based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy. These highly-collectible Return of the King philatelic sheets are ideal for framing 'as is'.
EACH SHEET INCLUDES a different stamp design featuring key characters and scenes from Peter Jackson’s The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King movies. Available in denominations of 40c, 80c, 90c, $1.30, $1.50, and $2.00, each sheet of 25 stamps (five rows by five columns) measures 28 x 15.5 cm; 11 x 6.1 inches and is bordered by a decorative gutter strip (selvage) which differs between the three commemorative issues. The Return of the King Stamp Sheets were only issued and marketed in New Zealand for a short time before they sold out.
Return of the King Stamp Sheets: Released in gummed sheets of 25 in standard values of 40c, 80c, 90c, $1.30, $1.50 and $2.00 on November 5, 2003 to commemorate The Return of the King movie which will premiere in Wellington on December 18, 2003. They were only marketed in New Zealand to honour Peter Jackson’s ‘The Lord of the Ring’ film trilogy and sold out quicker than anticipated. Additional sets featuring key characters and scenes were released to coincide with ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’ and a second issue was released for ‘The Two Towers’ in Dec. 2002.
