GB - Themed Smilers Sheets

Themed Smilers sheets are limited edition, privately produced stamp/label sheets commemorating special events, anniversaries, or other subjects and produced by Smilers enthusiasts, stamp clubs or dealers for the philatelic market. In their basic form they are characterised by the unique label designs adopted by the sheet producers.  Other sheets have added border graphics and text whilst some have been completely overprinted borders surrounding the stamp panes.  Themed Smilers with a catalogue prefix of TS indicates a production of 25 or more sheets were originally available whilst sheets with a TLS prefix (Themed Limited Sheets) indicate that less than 25 sheets were originally produced and consequently these generally command higher prices amongst collectors.
