Spain 2021 "Equality Stamps" set of 4 in pres pack. These were issued by the Spanish Post Office to promote the concept of equality as the Black Lives Matter protests have played out globally plus the endeavours of various sporting personalities & politicians to bring this matter to the forefront. In the process Spain issued 4 stamps in different skin tones with 0,70€, 0,80€, 1,50€ & 1,60€ values in a bid to promote the cause. However in making the lowest value black & the highest value white they created a massive storm of protest resulting in an instant withdrawal of the issue as news channels and social media took up the "fight"!! These have been highly sought after but virtually impossible to obtain. One of our vendors happened to be in the right place at the right time hence this opportunity to source an example & essential if you want your Spanish collection complete. We understand that SG will be listing it in their next catalogue. Exc condition complete with matching outer pack envelope. (see front cover)
