Commemorative Labels

Royal Mail introduced commemorative labels to mark special events that did not have their own stamps. There issued a large commemorative label inside books of 4 or 6 1st Class Stamps. These were only issued around once or twice a year and are now discontinued altogether. The last commemorative label issued was on 29 January 2001 to mark the Centenary of the death of Queen Victoria. To see what it looked like, check out our Queen Victoria covers.
