Miniature Sheet

Miniature sheets originated to celebrate special events, particularly stamp exhibitions. Rather than the normal sheets with fifty or a hundred impressions, small sheets suitable for mounting in an album were produced, with perhaps one or four impressions and wide margins with space for commemorative inscriptions.  Special postmarks were often provided. Nowadays such miniature sheets are far more frequently issued and in consequence have lost much of their 'special' nature, but the collector searching for complete sets still needs them.
