Vatican stamp issue sells out

Just five days after putting them on sale, the Vatican has sold out of special stamps to mark the period between popes.

Everyone from stamp collectors to pilgrims and tourists snapped them up at post offices around St. Peter's Basilica.

The stamps are only valid until a new pope is chosen.

They feature the traditional Vatican image of two crossed keys, but they're missing the papal headgear which normally appears on the stamps.

The stamps come in three denominations of Euro cents, in the colors red, blue, or green.
