Pope Benedict XVI Stamps Go on Sale

Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
Happy Birthday to the Troglodytrix!

From the Scotsman:
The first Vatican stamps bearing the image of Pope Benedict XVI went on sale at the Vatican today, the Vatican post office said. ...

The Vatican post office said that although people queued throughout the day to buy the first Benedict stamps, the crowds were smaller than those that gathered for the stamps issued after Pope John Paul II’s death. ...

The issue of the Benedict stamps was delayed from May 24 because of technical problems, and internet surfers started bidding for the stamps on eBay well before they went on sale.
