First lenticular stamp of France

Here it is : French Post is issuing its first lenticular stamp for the Rugby World Cup that begins at the end of this week, and all the advertisement industry adopts this sport to sell financials, cheese, beef steacks, metro tickets and stamps of 3 € value (normal letter : 0,54 €).

Look for heavy letters from France (exchange of books and reports between science places) or registered letters.

Auto-adhesive, this stamp has two thickness because the animated illustration is constructed with plastic. The right part is platified : be careful with your fingerprints and other little dusts. How this stamp will survive automatic mail sorting, is another story.

Compared to precedent communications documents, the usual signature of the artist Éric Fayolle and of the stamp agency Phil@poste are printed.
