FDC-Miniature Sheets

A miniature sheet or souvenir sheet is a small group of postage stamps attached to the sheet on which they were printed. Such stamps may be of special issues commemorating anniversary, centenary, theme or event. The number of stamps on MS ranges from one to about 12. MS of Geet Govind and MS with Zodiac Signs are the sterling examples. Both the stamps and the entire sheet are valid for mailing, although they are almost always sold above face value and kept in mint collection by collectors.India Post has issued various types of Miniature Sheets with variety of different combinations.(1) MS having imperforate stamps (2) MS having margins or selvage of the sheet having additional legend of event or occasion printed (3) MS having a full picture of which the stamp(s) is (are) just a small part (4) MS having ornamental designs, price, emblems and logo(s) which are not the part of stamp(s) (5) MS where stamps are in se-tenant position while the same stamps are not se-tenants in regular issue (6) MS having appropriate fragrance (7) MS of Joint Issue of 2 countries with theme of other country on 1 stamp (8) MS having only single stamp (9) FDC with MS with only one stamp and issued only in the form of Souvenir Sheet (10) MS having stamp of Khadi cloth.
