1. The Force has returned
"Royal Mail made the surprise announcement of the new stamps Sept. 12 and unveiled the designs at the same time.
"Twelve of the stamps feature characters from the Star Wars film series, and the other six picture vehicles and spaceships."
With the highly anticipated release of the The Force Awakens in December, Royal Mail will issue 18 stamps celebrating the Star Wars saga.
All of the bases will be covered, because characters, spaceships, and other vehicles will be depicted on the sheet that will be issued Oct. 20.
2. Scandinavian stamp sale
"The next Postiljonen international auction will take place Oct. 1-2 at the firm’s offices in Malmo, Sweden, offering top Scandinavian classics, along with a selection of worldwide stamps and postal history, larger lots and collections.
"This sale is being presented in two parts to specifically highlight a specialized collection of the earliest Danish classics from 1850 to 1863"
