One that didn't make the cut

This is one of the pictures for FF X that didn't make the cut - basically, I thought about using it but in the end it just seemed wrong for the setting:

I had a really complicated explanation about the techniques used for the colour printing etc., and the stamps being supplied as a roll with no perforations top or bottom, but in the end I decided that postage stamps were possibly a tad unlikely given the difficulties that dragons have handling small delicate things with their big sharp claws. I think that it's more likely that letters would have to be paid for at the post office, with something like a rubber stamp or the postmistress's signature to show that the money had been paid.

Later And the reason for posting this, which I completely forgot to mention, was that I was reminded of it by spending nearly an hour sticking on stamps this morning!
