An Post marks the centenary of the death of Michael Collins with a single stamp.
The national (N) rate stamp, designed by Ger Garland, goes on general release today and is available in selected post offices nationwide and online. The design features photography by C. & L. Walsh, of Michael Collins in military uniform (courtesy of the National Library of Ireland.)
An Post have also produced a commemorative First Day Cover which carries the new stamp and a specially designed cancellation mark featuring Collins’ name in similar typeface to that on the Béal na Bláth monument. In a break from tradition, and marking Collins’ Cork background, the cancellation mark includes the designation ‘Corcaigh.’
