This stamp issue centres on the story behind the third British settlement on Norfolk Island, which was established on 8 June 1856, when the entire population of Pitcairn Island (193 people, plus one birth at sea) concluded a harsh 33-day voyage, aboard the Morayshire, to their new home.
Stamp: George Hunn Nobbs
George Hunn Nobbs was a schoolteacher, pastor and community leader. Born in Ireland, Nobbs landed in Pitcairn Island in 1828, via Peru. In 1829, Nobbs married Sarah Christian, grand-daughter of Fletcher Christian, the infamous leader of the Bounty mutiny who had fled to Pitcairn to escape capture.

With Chinese New Year just around the corner, have you started eating the new year goodies? Just in case you are wondering yes this is a stamp with pineapple tarts and other biscuits. 😍 Please don’t ask me if it’s 3D 😂
Wow I found a Stamp store! I was so happy to walk through these doors, it was a blast to the past. Stamp stores are slim pickens these days. This one is in Coasta Mesa, Ca about an hour drive from my home. I met the owner Bob Chrisholm at at the Fullerton stamp convention a few weeks back, he gave me a card and I finally paid him a visit. I can't wait to go back. I truly hope more people would be drawn to the World of stamps, it is a fun and peaceful hobby. #stampcollecting #stamping #philatly #philatelic #stamps @exploringstamps @aps_stamps @stamps.in.a.box @vintage_stamps21
