Overprinted Themed Sheets - not new but .....

Oh dear! Not content with overprinting unsold stocks of Business Sheets it seems that a certain Smilers dealer is turning its attention to unsold stocks of  Themed Sheets! 

Rushstamps have issued a limited print number of 32 sheets (seems a rather random number - possibly unsold stock?) of their London 2010 Themed sheet (TS-174) overprinted with National Stamp Day / May 6th 2010 / "Philatex" in three lines in Black - bottom left and top right margins. The sheet has been allocated the Catalogue reference TS-174a. Another worrying development! (11/08)

The sheets will be given the Smilers Catalogue Numbering BC-034a, BC-035a, BC-036a and BC-037a.

Some of you wrote to us expressing your views and we wanted to give Smilers Collectors an opportunity to express their view directly to the sheet producer.  Here is your opportunity...
