Guildhall Postcard
1990 Stamp World Souvenir

The souvenirs issued in 1990 for Stamp World have additional writings both top and bottom.

While it is of such a size to permit 'cutting down' to equal the original's size, the stock is of a heavy paper, rather than card. The printing colour is different and the stock is of a lighter 'tone'. The impression is much cleaner than the 'reproduction', very close to the original but does contain some small differences of line, especially the shading of the Queen's head.

The black outline is the exact size of a genuine card aligned over the design, showing the possibility of cutting this down to resemble the 1890 card.
