Fantastic opportunity to own a complete collection of EVERY British commemorative stamp issued between 1969 and 1970
The last two years leading up to decimalisation in Great Britain was a classic period for commemorative stamps issued by the prestigious Royal Mail. This is a fantastic opportunity to own a complete collection of every single commemorative stamp issued almost 50 years ago in pristine, unmounted mint condition.
This impressive collection features a total of 56 British commemorative stamps. It includes stamps issued for the investiture of the Prince of Wales, the ceremony marking formal acknowledgement of a newly created Prince of Wales. It also includes stamps for the very first Concorde flight, Mahatma Gandhi’s birth centenary year, the ninth British Commonwealth Games and the difficult to source British Architecture series focusing on Cathedrals to name just a few of the highlights of this stunning collection.
Almost 50 years on, the very last commemorative stamps issued in ‘old money’ have since become highly collectable and captures the key everts during our great nation over this two year period.
The difficulty in sourcing a complete collection of these highly sought after British commemorative stamps is a key reason why it is in very high demand today. Harrington and Byrne has managed to secure a limited number of these complete collections to offer today.
