Why the Olympic issues are sold at reduced prices.

SG.763/8 - Mi.1807/12
The 60Fils values have a horizontal crease which ran across the whole sheet
Some gold strips have some finger marks

SG.MS769 - Mi.Blk.A/B 239
When these stamps and Miniature sheets were received from Yemen
many years ago almose every stamp and Miniature sheet
showed finger prints somewhere on the gold margins
of the Miniature sheets and gold strips on the stamps.
The odd thing is, when viewed in full sunlight these finger marks
are barely visible!
Because of these faults the stamps set and Miniature sheets
are being offered at approximately one fifth
of their catalogue valuations.
No refunds/exchanges will be made on any set or MS purchased.
