20140924 - SAINT PIERRE ET MIQUELON

UPDATED: November 19
 
New information about this stamp obtained directly from the stand of Saint Pierre et Miquelon Post Office in the last Philatelic Exhibition in Paris. 
The Pointe aux Canons stamp will be released in September 24, but in the year 2015,  not 2014.  It was an error in the publishing of the 2014 stamp programme.  
Bruno, the person who obtained this information and kindly shared with us, also got a preview image of the stamp for the next year. 
 

 
So, we have to wait, but the Pointe aux Canons stamp will be released.
 
Thanks to Klaus and Bruno for the info and the image.


------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATED: September 26
No news about this issue coming from SPM.  The stamps are still listed in the 2014 program but beyond that, nothing indicates that these stamps were released.  I am starting to think about a delay or a cancellation.
