A Souvenir Sheet in Cyberspace
These stamps from the Urissakzillian Mint were isssued by the
R.U.P.O--or Republika Urissakzillia Postika Officici--in a format
generally referred to as the 'souvenir sheet' by philatelists.
Souvenir Sheets are usually smallish sheets of stamps issued for
collectors. Often they commemorate some philatelic event. These
stamps were created to commemorate the commencement of
Urissakzillian postage stamps, which began in 2010.
