Great Britain. County Cricket. Issued 16 May 1973. Issued with all-over phosphor, the stamps were originally printed with two phosphor bands – however, the run was scrapped due to aesthetically unacceptable results in contrast between phosphor and non-phosphor areas. It was believed all copies of the original run had been destroyed, but examples with two phosphor bands surfaced in 2007 suggesting at least one sheet of each value survived.
