Description
Italian Republic 2006 - “Diciottenni” light blue souvenir sheet - Sassone n. 44
MNH (Mint never hinged)

Two special sheetlets with the same imagery, but were destined solely for the youngsters born in 1988 that would reach adulthood over the course of that year. During 2006 and the early months of 2007, 66,444 youngsters received the special stamp meant for them: 33,903 blue, 32,541 pink. The issue became the main point of discussion for collectors of new issues and dealers, and was also featured in the national press. However, it wasn't repeated for the following years and on the 5th October 2007 the remaining, undistributed sheetlets were destroyed.
