Sources

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 The Souvenir sheets issued in 2000 by The Cayman Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, and Samoa each contain a large decorative border (selvage) that surrounds the actual stamp. For use in postage, the actual stamp is sometimes removed from the selvage to fit onto an envelope. Thus, for example, to say that Kiribati issued two stamps depicting Elmo would be incorrect, since the stamp on the Kirbati souvenir sheet shows only grover, while the images of Elmo and Oscar appear in the selvage. In addition, cancellation marks are sometimes accidentally applied only to the selvage of a souvenir sheet; in such cases, the actual postage stamp is considered to be uncancelled.
