St Thomas á Becket Stamps
These stunning first day covers are highly collectable and feature beautiful Christmas-themed artwork, alongside Christmas 2020 stamp collections. The Christmas stamps for 2020 are a celebration of the Nativity, through the art of British stained glass windows.
2020 marks 850 years since Thomas á Becket was killed by four knights at Canterbury Cathedral after they had misinterpreted King Henry II’s words as a call to action. Subsequently Thomas Becket was made a saint in 1173. This lovely cover highlights the beauty of Canterbury Cathedral, while marking the year of Thomas á Becket’s death, with our Canterbury postmark (3rd November, 2020).
