SO…it was a teensy bit (OK…maybe a lot!) confusing yesterday when then retiring lists came out! The lists came from SU and I apologize I didn't catch the error; sleep deprived I guess!
It appeared almost every stamp set was being retired! The reality is with the discontinuation of Wood Mount stamps a lot of stamps are being converted to CLING MOUNT! Not all stamp sets are retiring!!!!
When the new catalog comes out in June, all stamps will be either PHOTOPOLYMER or CLING MOUNT. The Wood-Mount AND Clear-Mount will all be retired! So, any of the stamp sets that are currently Wood-Mount or Clear-Mount, that stay in the catalog, will all be converted to CLING-MOUNT.
BOTTOM LINE-NOT ALL STAMP SETS ARE RETIRING…yea!!! This is a good thing!
Here are revised lists for the retiring (and converting) ENGLISH stamp sets for the annual and Occasions catalogs.. Hope this helps! If you still have any question, PLEASE reach out!!
