People queue to buy stamps for use during the 'Sede Vacante', or Vacant See, created by the historic resignation of pope Benedict XVI, on an enveloppe on the day they were issued on March 1, 2013 at the Vatican. The unusual interregnum stamps, a series of four, include the Vacant See symbol -- a striped umbrella over crossed keys -- as well as the words Sede Vacante, Citta del Vaticano and MMXIII, the year in Roman numerals.
