Generic Sheet Listing, part 4

As if the various printing dates for the Blue and White stamp weren't enough, a second version of the sheet has been sold occasionally. This version of the sheet has just 8 stamps (and 8 labels) as opposed to the 12 of the regular sheet. All 4 sheets that I have seen have the same November 17th, 2007 printing date. The only one of the 4 that might be available from the philatelic service is the most recently released one for the Jerusalem 2010 show. It shows a price of 18.70NIS The others are blank.

I am not really sure of the issue dates of the Moses Montefiore sheet. It is claimed by the seller on E-bay to be issued December 5th, 2007. He also claims an edition of 500. The Elvis sheet is one that I have never seen on e-bay, but did see it offered in Linn's, and on the seller's website. He claims an issue date of November, 2007 (no date listed) and a quantity of 1000. The Mickey Marcus sheet is one I have in my collection, and it was issued on June 11, 2010. I have seen no claims as to the number issued. None of these have the serial numbers on the right hand margin, like the Herzl or first Pope sheet, so I have no way of knowing for sure. I assume the Jerusalem 2010 sheet was issued on November 21st, 2010, the first day of the Jerusalem 2010 stamp show. I will know more about this sheet when my order arrives in a few weeks.
