France. A few weeks ago, I merged into stock stamps from 2005-11. Some stamps from this period are hard to find in fine used condition. There were various other items I left to sort for a rainy day. Well, as you know we have had very few rainy days lately so I have only now got around to sorting these other items (even though the weather is still dry!)

There are two categories of these items: listed in Yvert as timbres personnalises and blocs souvenirs. Now, these are very hard to find in the British market, not helped by the fact SG do not list them. Please look for items RB2847-69 in the France section.
