'Variable rate definitive self-adhesive stamps' are called 'Post & Go stamps' and 'Faststamps' in a variety of other jurisdictions, they are popular, extremely collectible and viewed as the next generation of self-adhesive stamps. Each stamp includes the stamp worth, date of release, sequential number and stamp identifier.

The complete set of the Triskelion Definitives stamps are shown beautifully on this luxurious envelope with a Manx tartan design. The set is cancelled with a special postmark for the date of issue. Inside the envelope is a filler card which has insightful details about how variable worth self-adhesive stamps happened and the styles included on this first set from Isle of Man Post Office.

These stamps, with their own sequential number and stamp identifier, make these a really distinct edition to your collection. The 4 variations of this emblem are based upon:

  • The Three legs as they appear in Douglas Town Hall
  • The Millenium of Tynwald three legs
  • The three legs as seen on the old brewery building on Castletown Quay
  • A modern analysis of the three legs of man.

The legs normally run clockwise and carry the Latin motto 'Quocunque Jeceris Stabit' meaning 'whichever way you throw, I stand', a referral to the independence and strength of the Manx people.
