Crown Cover Falklands
In 2002 H.M. the Queen celebrated 50 years as our Queen, 1952-2002. The Falkland Islands
issued a crown to celebrate the event and it was decked out with red, white and blue banners.
You have the Queen on the obverse and again the Queen on horseback on the reverse.
The crown is in Prooflike Uncirculated condition and highlighted with red, white and blue
banners. It comes in a full colour cover cancelled on the First Day of Issue (FDC). There are
four stamps on the cover all from Jamaica and all showing the Queen in four different stages
of her life.
This makes a most unusual and interesting addition to your collection, after all how many
crowns are coloured in red, white and blue?
