Odd Shaped Sheet - South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands

This one is by far my favourite. A set of four stamps along with this minisheet was issued in 2008 depicting the chinstrap penguins, an easily identified species of the islands. The sheet is large and measures 140 x 198 mm. This is my only set of stamps or a sheet of this island territory. The territory previously had been governed as part of the Falkland Islands Dependencies. Under the new constitution, effective 3 October 1985, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands ceased to be dependencies of Falkland Islands.
