October 2009 Halloween

Following the success of the 2008 release ‘Dead Letter Office’ stamp, the All Hallows Post Office started a no-cost postal service to send letters to ‘the other side’ during Halloween only.  However, no responsibility was taken for any replies received!  Is there anybody there?

The issue is a single ‘no-fee’ stamp featuring Death in a mirror with a suitable gothic design.  The stamps were issued in sheets of 15, with a single mythprint included.  A single mounted stamp was made available in its own All Hallows skeletal turtle envelope.  There was also a bonus envelope with a single stamp mini-sheet.

Two covers were available. The standard cover had a single stamp, while the deluxe had both the common stamp and the mythprint as a pair. Both covers came with signed certificates of authenticity.

The issue was preceded by the release of a number of imperforate prototype designs with inscription Death of Stamps.
