The Special Edition 50p Cabbage Green known as the 'The Skunk Stamp’, a variant of the 50p cabbage green, 'perfumed’ with the scent of cabbage created by Terry himself (aided and assisted by Rob and Bernard) and sealed in jars with City Watch forensic department seal and evidence label.
The stamps were printed with a cabbage-based glue to be sent to Ankh-Morpork expatriates living in foreign climes. The glue included a distillate of Kohl Rabi, Cabbage and Cauliflower. Apart from the pungency, the smell is said to have a curious pervasive, flatulent quality that attaches itself to anything nearby.
As far as is known, no letter with one of these affixed has ever reached its destination
