2007 St Valentine’s Day

A dual issue with a single 1F blue stamp matching the 1F pink from 2006, and a pair of Cabbage Heart stamps.  A packing label was also issued.

The 1F blue stamp measured 38x32mm and the Be Mine label 34×26 mm. Both were perforated 11.5

The Cabbage Heart stamps are inscribed MY HEART IS LIKE A CABBAGE DIVIDED INTO TWO THE LEAVES I GIVE TO OTHERS THE HEART I GIVE TO YOU. Size 31 x 34 mm.  The stamps were printed in sheets of 10, two of each stamp, with one variation per sheet.  The 2F variation had small hearts replacing diamonds in the top cartouches.  The 14F had a small heart between the ST and VA at the bottom.  Perforated 13 or imperforate.  Tête-bêche pairs of both values exist as well as pairs with one of each value, indicating the variety in the sheet arrangements – a sheet of 10, with the values alternating. Miniature sheets of 4 in a 2×2 arrangement were issued as well as a Valentine’s card in a franked cover.
