Collection of 18 NEW/MINT/UNUSED "LOCO 100" Series (1983 - 1986) Leaders of the World Railway / Locomotive Postcards

Between 1983 and 1987 the Islands of the British Commonwealth collaboratively produced an Omnibus issue of postage stamps (the Locomotive Philatelica - Leaders of the World or Loco 100 Series) depicting famous and historic locomotives.  At the same time, a number of commemorative postcards  were issued by the islands on the same day as the stamps were released.  These were released together as First Day of Issue (FDI) postcards and cancelled by the Islands' Philatelic Bureaux.

On offer here are 18 of these Mint Postcards (from a bulk job lot of leftover Loco 100 Postcards), which it is believed were never originally offered for sale to collectors or the public before in mint condition (i.e. without the FDI stamps).

All of the postcards are illustrated and detailed below.  The original stamps depicting each locomotive are also available in my eBay Shop as se-tenant pairs and complete sheets ready for framing.

All Postcards are a standard 14.8 cms x 10.5 cms (5.75 x 4.125 inches).

There's no catch - ALL 18 POSTCARDS AS ILLUSTRATED BELOW FOR £1.39 (less than 8p per Card!).

Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
