LOT 2168 GB EdVII booklet (SG BA6)
A fine example of this scarce complete booklet. The front cover is a little worn but the perfs are excellent. This booklet was not issued until June 1911 a year after King Edward VII died and was quickly superseded by the first GV booklet issued that August. It was also the last time the PO charged for the booklet itself - the charge was an old halfpenny - doesn't sound much but it was not popular. Cat £2800. Est: £800.
Edward VII - Slotted Frame varieties
This is a little-known variety even though there was a detailed article in GSM 20 years ago. The slotted frame shows as a vertical break in the outer frame at the top right. It occurs on the EVII keyplate for various issues for Cayman Is, Gambia, St Helena and Seychelles
In this sale there are four examples shown here, three for Gambia (lots 913, 917 and 918), and Seychelles (lot 1675). Click on the stamp images to magnify them.
