UNAUTHORISED COPY RESTRIKES


Lundy copies or restrikes~.jpg

Copy restrikes, dated 1965.


Note that Lundy ISLAND is WRONG!

Lundy is old Norse for "puffin island". Adding the word "Island" would be superfluous.


Also, Martin Coles Harman had died in 1964.

Therefore these items are not genuine,

And the 1965 "restrikes" never circulated.
