WIN – *TEN* sets Isle Of Man Charles III Coronation Sheets of 12!
Thanks to the generosity of IOM Bureau Manager Maxine Cannon and her Team, we have TEN of these attractive mini sheets of 12 to give away during May.
Maxine Cannon, the Philatelic Bureau Manager of the Isle of Man Post Office said the collection was believed "to be the first stamps to feature HM Queen Consort Camilla which have been approved by the King".
These superb looking sheets have a face value of £15.60 or about $A30 each, and will be posted to winners direct by the Isle Of Man Bureau.

How to win .. well simply type a number here – you can enter as many times as you wish. 10 times, 100 times or 1000 times!
Type a number here between 1 and 10,000. Type NOTHING else - just the number, with no commas or symbols etc.
DO NOT TYPE '00' or '000' etc before entries -- it will make checking winners at the end near impossible.
4927 or 492 or 42 etc
Competition closes midnight Sydney time, on May 31st.
I’ll ask Maxine to use a random number generator, to choose 10 numbers between 1 and 10,000. The closest numbers posted here to those numbers, win the superb MUH Sheetlet of 12 shown here. THERE WILL BE 10 Winners. Any member can win 2 or 3 sheetlets of 12 etc if they are closest - so the more entries you make, the better your chances!
i.e. if 3693 is one of Maxine’s numbers generated, the closest below or above that is that winner – in the case of a tie like 3694 and 3692 etc, the EARLIEST post wins.
Posts on this thread are NOT limited to 10,000 and will doubtless exceed it. Why? As clearly number 2345 (or whatever) might be posted several times, within the first 10,000 posts meaning some other numbers are not yet posted. I did a spot check when we reached 10,000 posts, of 5 numbers - and 2 of them had not yet been posted here, so keep making guesses!
The ‘search in this topic' box at top left allows a fast check to be made of the winning numbers - once we get Maxine’s 10 random number choices at month end. As always, members take part in the determination of who posted what and when, and verifying the results of others, making it fair and transparent to all.
The Judge's decision is final, and guess who the Judge is here.
The Coronation of HM King Charles III and HM Queen Camilla
Isle of Man Stamps and Coins is honoured to recognise the accession and coronation of King Charles III with a set of twelve stamps. Eight of the stamps feature images of HM King Charles III and HM Queen Camilla in a mix of ceremonial events and more social occasions and the three of the four final stamps show portraits of the King by Richard Stone, June Mendoza and David Griffiths with the final stamp showing HM the King's cypher.
In this issue we have combined the hopes and prayers of a generation: the King, his Queen, the royal cypher, the life he has lived so far, and His coronation.
We are honoured to have collaborated with international best selling author and award-winning journalist Robert Jobson, who has written the issue text for our King Charles III coronation day products.

This new issue even made it to BBC News -
A new set of Isle of Man stamps celebrating King Charles III's coronation have been released.
The twelve-stamp collection features photographs of the King and Queen Consort, along with portraits of His Majesty and his royal cypher.
The King's representative on the island, Lieutenant Governor Sir John Lorimer, said the collection was a "fitting tribute".
The Coronation took place on 6 May at Westminster Abbey.
The King was proclaimed Lord of Mann following the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September.
Maxine Cannon from Isle of Man Post Office said the collection was believed "to be the first stamps to feature HM Queen Consort Camilla which have been approved by the King".
The postal tribute marked the "historic occasion of His Majesty King Charles III accession to the throne with HM Queen Consort Camilla by his side", she added.
Sir John described the collection as "a most fitting tribute" to commemorate the accession to the throne of King Charles III.
"I join with the whole Island in marking His Majesty's forthcoming coronation, by extending our loyal greetings to His Majesty and Her Majesty Queen Camilla at the dawn of this new era," he added.
