France’s postal service, La Poste, has just unveiled a new set of first class, 20-gram collectible stamps that celebrates the innovation of Citroën. These 10 stamps, which reflect the automaker’s history through a selection of some of its most memorable models, are presented together in a handsome French-language book, Citroën: Une marque, une histoire, that illustrates the role these vehicles played.
They are also available as two separate sets of five stamps.
Oddly enough, models like the SM, GS, Ami and Hy Van were not included. Arguably they should have offered 3 sets!
These stamps went on sale on October 25, and they represent a limited edition. There were 9,500 copies of the full book (costing €19.90, or $25.40, plus international shipping) created, and 4,500 each of the first and second five-stamp batches (costing €5.50, or $7 apiece, plus international shipping).
