I have in one of my collections a MINT set of SIX Isle of Man fdc's titled "150th anniversary Isle of Man steam packet company Ltd, each cover also shows the colorful picture of a ship ( ferry boat ? )in very bright colors, beneath each cover is printed eg; " carried on S.S. Mona's Isle then beneath that again is printed Isle of Man R.P.S each cover numbered starting at 42 43 44 45 46 47 . Next each cover is twice over stamped with a "sailboat" logo, then a ships stamped "Posted On Board 14th August1980, mail office S.S. Mona's Isle. postage stamp prices range from 7 pence to 15 pence. I have searched high and low to find above subject information , even Isle of Man Post Office tell me they have no record of these 6 covers ?? I am hoping and would appreciate it , if you have UK FDC catalogs or similar to identify and get a final answer to my questions. Sincerely . Thomas Martin. Town of Windsor .Connecticut USA.
