Europa stamps: since 1960-1961, 1969, 1980-1999, 2001->

Official site:

"Great-Britain as many other countries issued their first Europa stamp in 1960, then their issues where irregular: 1961, 1969, and then non-stop since 1980 only (with an exception in 2000) even if some British territories as Jersey, Guernsey or the Isle of Man produced Europa stamps since the mid-seventies!

Great-Britain as the inventor of the "stamp" is the only country in the world issuing stamps without adding the name of their country on it, only the face or the monogram of the Queen (or King) is shown on them.

The British Europa stamps are often part of a larger set where only some of the stamps are baring the Europa stamps logo."
