World's Second Oldest Stamp Set

1841 Great Britain Complete Used Set of 2
Shortly after producing history’s first postage stamps (the Penny Black and Two-Penny Blue), Great Britain released this imperforate pair – two more years would pass before any other nation issued its first stamps! More than 170 years old, this beautifully-engraved set has stood the test of time!

Telling the difference between G.B. #1 (the Penny Black) and G.B. #3 is easy - the "One Penny" denomination was changed to a red-brown color so the cancels could be seen better by Postal workers. The "Two Pence" difference is a little more subtle. The blue G.B. #4 has a white horizontal line above the "Two Pence" denomination.


1937 King George VI Coronation

Complete Collection of 202 Mint Stamps plus Album
The reluctant King! Raised in the shadow of his older brother Edward, George (known to his family as "Bertie") was awkwardly shy, plagued with health problems, and spoke with a stammer. The Oscar-nominated film "The King's Speech" tells the fascinating story of his efforts to overcome his stammer and find his voice, culminating in an inspirational speech to the British people on the brink of war.

Historic Mint First British Coronation Omnibus!
On May 12, 1937, Great Britain and 56 members of the British Empire celebrated the Coronation of King George VI with this attractive collection. After the sudden death of King George V and the scandalous abdication of King Edward VIII, the British Empire gladly accepted the shy, soft-spoken George VI as their new King. This popular Omnibus issue depicts a youthful George VI with his wife Queen Elizabeth, and was surprisingly printed with just a few months' notice. This spectacular mint collection is displayed in a gold-titled album and includes the desirable sets from Hong Kong and Newfoundland!
