Junk Mail Stamp

A special April Fools Day stamp has been created by Christopher Phillips of the Scarborough Philatelic Society. The “junk mail” stamp reminds people to place unwanted mail in the wastepaper basket and not be “fooled” into buying things they don’t want.

According the the Scarborough Evening News, the stamps will be given out free to members of the Scarborough group and some will be sold to collectors on auction website Ebay.

Mr Phillips has been producing the April 1 stamps since last year, when he created a topsy-turvy version of a first class stamp with the lettering “Airmail Post to Southern Hemisphere”.
