210-Tristan Da Cunha (TDC) manufacturer samples

These are two Tristan Da Cunha manufacturer’s samples, both probably from 2009. When the island Post Office was getting low on souvenir plates, they contacted some plate manufacturers for quotes for another batch.
The graphic design is British and the plain black plate is German. As of early 2011, it is believed that Tristan Da Cunha has not yet placed any orders for new souvenir plates as they still have a small stock of the black perspex (plexiglass) plates remaining and it is not known when they will start selling a new design.
