This crazy envelope surely has to win some kind of prize for its eccentric mix of British commemorative and definitive stamps from many different years and issues! Posted on 7 October 2003, it carries the following stamps (running clockwise):

11 1/2p – Policeman Directing Traffic issued on 26 September 1979 as part of the 150th Anniversary of the Metropolitan Police set;

63p – Ballyroney, County Down from the Sub-Post Offices set issued on 12 August, 1997 to mark the centenary of the National Federation of Sub-Postmasters;

65p – Spiral Hat by Philip Treacy issued on 19th June, 2001 as one of four Fashion Hats;

68p – Deep reddish lilac and silver Tudor Rose regional issue which were in circulation from 2001 -2002;

2p – Myrtle-green with 2 phosphor bands (Queen Elizabeth II decimal definitives issued between 15th February 1971 and 6th February 1996) ;
