Souvenir sheets with 6 stamps (Italy SMOM) or 1 stamp and 5 labels (Vatican) – FDCs - mixed FDCs – folder with all three souvenir sheets, mint and a cinderella item
From the 23,000 souvenir sheets created by SMOM, 7,000 items were used for the 04b folder, about 3,000 were provided to the SMOM annual stamp subscribers and 2,000 were provided to the Italian post for creating other official items (CTO, FDCs, …). The remaining 11,000 were not made available to stamp collectors and apparently directly sold to dealers. This is another reason to consider SMOM issues as not relevant beside this postal office still not officially recognized by UPU.
