One of our incredible members of staff have been going through our stock of First Day Covers and have managed to put
together 10 different from the 1960’s to the 1990’s. The ones you get may vary
from the illustrations, but all will be different and all will be British.
Remember some of them will be 50 years old. These make an excellent gift for the
holiday season, they are all British and all 10 are different.
We recently bought a stamp dealer out of all the older First Day
Covers (FDC) that he had in stock and there were thousands of
them. They date from the 1960’s and 1970’s with an occasional
cover from the 1980’s.
But we made sure that each cover had more than one commemorative
stamp on them and many of the covers have as many as four
different stamps on them. Each cover has a cache on it and it was
cancelled on the first day that the stamps were issued.
We are bundling them into groups of ten different covers, each with
more than one stamp on each and we are going to offer them at just
£9.50 a bundle. That works out to less than £1.00 a cover and these
are older covers. Each bundle will be different and no one knows
which covers you will get, but at only 95p each we think they are very
In the huge lot of First Day Covers (FDC) that we bought, there were a certain amount of non Great Britain covers. We have placed them aside and counted them into bundles of ten (10) different covers. Some are Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man all of which issue FDC’s in far smaller numbers than our Post Office. But I have also included other countries, including two from Africa.
We don’t know which countries you are going to get, as we have someone who doesn’t know anything about stamps counting them out. That way, if something scarce or rare comes up, it is still included in the package. You can have ten different non GB First Day Covers at a reasonable price. If you order a great number of bundles there is some chance that there might be some slight duplication, but the more you order, the more you get.
Half Penny and Half Pence stamps, the change
over from pre-decimal to decimal usage. You
get 1/2p Queen Elizabeth II stamp in blue plus the
1/2d Queen Elizabeth II stamp in brown. Both have
the portrait of the Queen on them and both are the
lowest denomination stamps made of our Queen.
You get half and half, so 100 stamps is 50 1/2d and
Because King Edward VIII only served for ten months, the Post Office only got
around to issuing 4 stamps with his portrait. At that time we had a presence in
Morocco and so some of these unique stamps were overprinted for use in our offices
Great combination Edward VIII mint unused stamps but overprinted for use in
Morocco. The denomination being offered here is the 15c in quantities of 100.
If you have never even seen these, now is the chance to not only see them but to own
some at a great price.
