Revised Cory Aquino Stamps Will Be A Hit Too!

Glad I was able to get hold of a few copies of the September 8, 2009 Cory Aquino Commemorative se-tenant stamps.

My friend Marco Ruben Malto, the designer of the stamp relayed "...the first series are already out of stock within 5 days after its release... Philpost is really surprised with the turn out of sale of the Cory stamps, to quote them saying - selling like hot cakes!"

On September 18, 2009, Philpost decided to print 300,000 revised version of the Cory Aquino stamps. These reprints are actually a second series. There are changes in the layout of texts (PILIPINAS) and the denomination (p7). If one compares the two issues, they are completely different from each other.

Stamp collectors in the country believe that the second series will be as popular as the first and will be a big hit too!
