    I received this in a box of miscellaneous items I purchased a few months ago. I’ve done some searching, but haven’t been able to identify it. Obviously some sort of commemorative item from the John Paul II’s Vatican with Vatican Museum stamps. I see some similar online but not this particular one. Anyone able to ID it?

    Four pages, booklet form in protective sleeve. The stamps were issued in 1998 I believe.

    Hello Molokai, I was not able to identify scan 2 or 3 (yet) but 1 and 4 info below. (Each from a six stamp issue)

    Thank you, James! Looking at the prices I guess I can't quit my day job just yet. :inpain:

    Hello Molokai, I've not found your stamp from this group, I suspect different issue dates. I have found undated images online of several values and overprints.
    Try searching 10 years either side of 1945

    Thanks again, James. I am thinking it must be something someone purchased at the Vatican museum. I tried TinEye also and didn't come up with anything.

    Have a safe, pleasant and productive journey, James. When I travelled frequently to Switzerland on business I found coming back (western bound) was much harder on me than going (eastern bound).

    Thank you Molokai, being 11 years into my retirement I find it quite easy to adjust my sleep cycle for the westbound journey, much easier than the 6 hour change in timezones that I used to suffer when working all day, shower and shave then catching the midnight flight.
    The temperature change does'nt bother me too much but the sudden 17'c (30.6'f) drop is harder for my wife.

    Regards, James.
