Ever since this issue was announced to have a printing of 300,000 sets only, speculation has been rife. The stamps were cornered immediately after issue and the price shot up to 500ptas per set in Barcelona. However, the French Authorities have reprinted the two stamps at least once, possibly twice, and maybe even three times. So, do not buy this set at inflated prices as the French P.T.T. are certain to ensure there are plenty to go around.
