Maps of Jersey on stamps

On 9 February, Jersey Post will issue five new self-adhesive postage stamps for use on items of mail requiring the minimum postage tariff for the other Channel Islands and United Kingdom destinations.

The stamps will feature a variety of maps of Jersey, both antique and modern, dating from 1685 and it is interesting to observe the apparent thoughts of cartographers over the different periods of time.

These Non Value Indicator stamps (NVI's) will be the first set of stamps to bear a change in the wording of Jersey Post's NVIs. Previously, each NVI stamp in this set would have been titled 'UK Minimum Postage Paid' but the stamps will now read 'UK Letter' instead.
