French Booklet: It´s a girl
After the stamps "it's a boy" and "it's a girl" 'La Poste' France has issued supermarket sheets with 10 birth stamps. The sheet "it's a boy" is not interesting for us because it's a baby dressed as butterfly.
The sheet "it's a girl" shows a sleeping baby, dressed as bee, on the flower of a courgette. The franking value of the stamps is 0,50 euro. So the whole sheet costs 5,00 euro (= 6,50 US $).
The stamps cannot be delivered separately. We think the price of the sheet might be high for some collectors. So you have to order for it via the new issue bulletin. Don't wait too long, when you like the sheet.
