Jersey Too Large

Up Catalog




Image:English Channel.jpg






     Jersey has issued several stamps with maps of the English Channel in which the island of Jersey is many times larger in relationship to other land masses than it should be. For example, Jersey 41 and 44 show Jersey about twice as large as the Isle of Wight when, in reality, it is only about half the size (see the map above).




     On Jersey 267 the scale of the map is larger, but the relationship is similar.
