    British Millennium Time Stamp
    From: Richard B. Langley
    Date: 1999 Feb 17, 10:49 EST

    I don't think I saw mention on the sundial or navigation lists of one of the
    Royal Mail's new millennium stamps.  The 20p stamp issued on 12 January is
    called "Timekeeping" and was one of 4 stamps featuring British inventors and
    inventions released that day (there will be 48 millennium stamps in all on
    different themes). The stamp stylistically features Harrison's chronometer and
    the Greenwich meridian line.  Image and description available at
    <http://www.royalmail.co.uk/athome/stamps/jan.htm>.  The image resolution
    isn't very good. Would anyone care to do a high resolution scan of the stamp
    and make it available to list members?
