Default Collect or not collect

Speaking of the 2008 Finland/Greenland Expedition Joint Issue.
Both countries issued a SS but Greenland also issued two additional
stamps, identical to the ones in the SS.
I have not checked the perferations, just assumed they are the same.
I am wondering if I should collect the two stamps just to have a
complete issue.
Oh well, I suppose so even if the two stamps are $7.79 USD, same as
the SS.

G'day Ralphael,
I agree, also a SS may have colour around the borders
as opposed to the paper of the pane perforated.
As an entirety, they attract a differing catalogue number anyhow

One would expect that, to extract the maximum revenue, Greenland would
have
made some difference between the 'singles' and the sheetlet. After all why
lose that $7.79 plus postage and handling!

Dare I suggest that you have to collect the single stamps in pairs,
so you can prove that they did not come frim the souvenir sheet?

Not in pairs, single stamps with tab are the way my dealer offers
them.
