This long-awaited new edition of the King George VI stamp catalogue is an invaluable tool to the collector of this extraordinarily popular area of collecting. It is now up-to-date in line with the Commonwealth and British Empire Stamps 2010 and contains definitive information about the stamps of this popular reign.
'Many of the illustrations show enlarged sections of the relevant stamps, and the use of arrows greatly assists the collector…..all the information needed to decide what to collect.' - David Rennie, Philatelic Exporter, April 2010
Numerous new varieties have been added to the listings since the 2001 edition, most notably watermark varieties – from Aden 29w, the 2½d Victory with watermark inverted, to Zanzibar 336a, the 30c. UPU with ‘C’ missing from watermark.
All the newly listed plate varieties are illustrated in colour and include such favourites as the Australia 6d Kookaburra ‘Top Hat’ flaw and the Gibraltar 2d. ‘Ape on Rock’. Other editorial revisions include the expansion of the listings for the 1938 set of the Falkland Islands and the addition of the $25 Postal, Fiscal of Straits Settlements. The ‘thin striated papers’ of Bahamas and Malaya are now separately listed and priced and there is an expanded introduction with an illustrated condition guide.
