Iglesia Ni Cristo stamps variation

Mr. Eraño G. ManaloIglesia Ni Cristo (INC) stamps which was issued on April 23, 2010. It is classified as a “Special” kind of issue with a denomination of P 7.00 and quantity of 100,000 pieces.

This special  stamp issue  is also called ” Memorial stamp ” issue . Most of the first print of the INC were sold -out in just matter of days !

In my recent visit to the PHILPOST -Philatelic Bureau – Mrs. Elenita San Diego , the chief philatelic head of the division told me that due to the overwhelming support from the INC members, memorabilia collectors, philatelists from all over the world.  That Philpost is already printing the third set of another 100,000 copies of the INC stamps. That means  300,000 pieces of INC stamps !

first printing is on top – issued April 23, 2010 ( First day cover is lighter in color ) second printing is on April 26,2010 ( darker in color)

Most of the non-philatelists would not really know the difference between first , second and third printing ????? Who Cares? As long as these customers are satisfied with the INC stamps they would not know . Humm ? Tita Cory Aquino se-tenant  memorial stamps had reach second print !!!!

But for the sake of the millions of Philatelists ( stamp collectors ) worldwide , Here are the slight differences between the first ,  second printing and  possibly the third . I have not seen the third printing  , but i expect some minor differences.
