  1. A big disappointment, to start with, not even the MS is worth it.And at 3 pounds ! No go. The stamps will sell as usual, no more, pity children will not be attracted, another let down to philately, come on England you can do better. Have another set with great photos of action.

  2. Disappointed as well. Not an Olympic stamps collector to start with but really I find those stamps very dull. UK usually produce interesting designs but not this time.

  3. If Cyprus is another indicator going the way UK Olympic stamps have gone, we are heading for a dull, drab, listless British philatelic summer. O wind (spring) if (the Br.) winter (of philately) comes, can spring (of European stamps) be far behind ?
