In our last post we mentioned the WWII German Propaganda Forgery of the KGVI Coronation issue. We also have a set of 6 propaganda forgeries of the 1937 KGVI issues of Great Britain, SG 462-467. In these forgeries the cross on King George VI’s crown is replaced by a Star of David, and a hammer and sickle appear in the flower at top left.
Here’s a little gem we are admiring in the latest group of additions. The New Hebrides 1972 issue 5 Centimes color error, with map same color as ship. This is an attractive, inexpensive corner margin plate number copy.
Our stock regularly includes a broad selection of the King George V Seahorse type. The Irish seahorses have great visual appeal and are more affordable than Great Britain examples, even in pristine condition or in multiples. Here are two blocks currently in stock. Note that the 5 Shilling also features the ‘R’ over ‘SE’ overprint variety.
And lastly, we thought we would highlight an item from our small and carefully chosen selection of covers. This interesting 1925 example from Tristan da Cunha features Cachet III (SG C3), a GB 2d Postage Due stamp and Durban C.D.S. & backstamp.
As long as they are still available, all of these items can be viewed on our Online Price List by clicking on the images in this post.
