    Today we have Star Wars stamps from St. Vincent & The Grenadines. These stamps were released to coincide with the THX video release of the Star Wars Trilogy in 1995. The foil stamps were advertised in newspapers and magazines, primarily as a collectible, although they were valid postage in their original country.

    They were available in sheets of rectangular $1 stamps, and triangular $2 stamps. These particular sets were obtained from a friend who got them from the International Collectors Society. The certificates of authenticity shown issued by this company to accompany any sheets they sold.
