      Hope I get to go to London in August so I can buy them at the post office near Paul's house! (went there in 2006 to buy phone cards for my kids so they could call their boyfriend/girlfriend!) 😂

        Yes, Nancy!It was posted yesterday on Paul's Twitter and this is a postbox in the heart of the English countryside. The initials "VR" refer to Queen Victoria who died in 1901. The fresh red paint suggests the box is still in use. It is at least 120 years old and you can see more on Google, for example, searching "VR Post Box" 

          Ops, Yes Nancy and Oobu24* ^. You can buy on this site https://shop.royalmail.com/special-stamp-issues/paul-mccartney?cid=SC0521_PMC_PR_01

            I saw that twitter post yesterday. I was hoping it was going to be a deluxe edition of the rushes album. Oh well!

              That was also the cover of his Fireman album.

                Wonder if any will actually be used for mailing something instead of being bought as a stamp collectors item -lol.

                  Thanks! Couldn't get it to load the page - will try later. And I saw that old VR postbox on FB! Very cool! 

                    Lick it to Ride LOL those British puns crack me up 

                      Going to order some of these, hope their postal service prints lots of them.  Do you think anyone would actually use them? They look 👀 Great 👍🏼 

                      My crazy friend Jennifer ordered 3 of these: the medals bundle, the postcards and the souvenir stamp folder!

                      I might go for the discounted Paul McCartney bundle for £55.29. I like the first day covers too. My dad collected them from all over the world since he was a teenager and I inherited them. Will pass on to my son. Hopefully he can sell them for his retirement. 

                      P.S. The pound has gone up to $1.39!

                              I see the pound has gone up to $1.39 now! My friend paid $92.86 for the 3 items she bought. Not sure if she'll get free shipping as it only mentions that for U.K. customers. ☹️

                                I went crazy too and ordered these:
