Stamp Packets

Each pack is made up of identical stamps, so buying multiple packs of the same reference code you would end up with complete sets of duplicates.

Also note pack reference codes, for example:-
M155 25 Football stamps
M156 50 Football stamps
M157 100 Football stamps
The 100 pack M157 would contain 75 duplicates from the packs of 25 and 50.

This applies to all other packs of thematic and country stamps.

Although packs with different reference codes, for example:-
M48 25 cat stamp
(316) 25 cat stamps
The 2 packs will likely have some duplicates but not be identical packs.
