These stamps were designed by Jennifer Toombs and printed in offset-lithography by Harrison & Sons.  Originally it was intended to issue the set to mark Guernsey s postal independence on 1 October 1969.  However, the Post Office (Guernsey) Law required the closure of the Island s own postal service so they were issued in mid September with a life of 14 days.

B&F 111 116 and B&F 111.S 116.S
