Another South African Railways 10v sheetlet issued on 25th June 2010. This year seems to have a lot of Train stamps from many countries, including our own.

It is a pity that the designers had airbrushed the denomination on the stamps that were depicted on printing techniques issue. While I understand that this is done to prevent users being confused by two denominations on the same stamp, I feel that it would be neater to reuse the designs of the original stamp but altering the denomination to reflect current denomination. (Yeah, I know it presents a challenge if the current rate is "Standard Postage" but there could be a work around)
