Octagonal Shaped Birds Stamps

Here's a beautiful sheet I received only today from a friend in UAE. The sheet depicts Sea Birds of the United Arab Emirates and has six stamps on the sheet. Many have referred to the stamps as hexagonal on their blogs but obviously these are octagonal (Eight sided).

The sheet was issued on 4th November 2010.

1 AED: Black-Headed Gull
2 AED: Grey Heron Ardea
150 Fils: Crab Plover
550 Fils: Caspian Gull
450 Fils: Socotra Cormorant
3 AED: Sooty Gull

AED (Arab Emirates Dirham). 1 AED = 100 Fils
