The Scottish medical missionary and explorer David Livingstone (1813-1873) is considered to be one of the greatest heroes of the Victorian era. A handsome commemorative sheet issued on 1 May celebrates the bicentenary of his birth.

Although stated to be from a print run of 10,000 sheets Royal Mail have verbally confirmed to me in the past that they have not printed 10,000 for similar issues. In practice a smaller number may have been printed initially to meet projected sales, probably in the region of c. 1000 - 2000 sheets.  Treat the 10,000 figure with caution.
