My Great Britain Queen Elizabeth stamps 1952 to present day.

Post by ebay »

.
Ok I thought I'd make a thread - I'll be posting over time, my GB Queen Elizabeth stamps in order, from 1952 to present day.

67+ years worth so it might take awhile. I'm sorting them out at the moment as they're all over the place and there are a few sets missing hopefully doing this thread will help me organise them.

Bear with me if I make the odd mistake on any of these with the SG numbers on those early machins.

Add yours, and comments if you wish. :mrgreen:

By the way, do you mean "Wildings"? (Although no SG numbers quoted for these- probably wisely!)

Hi norvic

To tell you the truth i hadn't realized these had different watermarks !!
and quoted the first in the catalogue.

Then realized and decided to scrub the SG numbers on those wilding heads, Most likely they were the cheaper Wmk.

You may be correct, but certainly worth checking them carefully. Could be the difference between a stamp worth 20 pence and 200 quid. :idea:

I'll have to check, I probably brought the cheapest UM mint set i could find so 99% chance these are the lowest value Wmks.

I'm glad, ebay, you weren't put off by some gentle "ribbing". This period is certainly interesting in seeing what GB "celebrated" on stamps.

You are a brave collector indeed continuing to the present day, considering the number of issues concerned! (I personally stopped at decimalisation).

Just a hint which some moderators might make (I am not one!) - if you tie your SG numbers to the picture it is more likely to be picked up by search engines and therefore get more views.

To be honest I don't like modern stamps :lol:

I started on this many years ago and feel I've come too far not to carry on!!

I'm going to keep on going till Charles becomes King then that's it I'm stopping there.

.......Thanks for that tip about the SG numbers, I'll give that a go.

You are a brave collector indeed continuing to the present day, considering the number of issues concerned! (I personally stopped at decimalisation).

Just a hint which some moderators might make (I am not one!) - if you tie your SG numbers to the picture it is more likely to be picked up by search engines and therefore get more views.

e.g.

GB SG659-660
Sounds like me, I bought a UK collection, largely complete except rare stamps 1883 - 2007, mostly lightly used - yet the person who made stopped the collecting right before the first Harry Potter issue in July 2007 (Literally the last stamps are British seaside released June 2007).

Wallpaper is always a good way to kill a long term one of everything collection.

Meanwhile ebay I love your stamps.

I once asked a group of kids what happened in 1666.

Their reply- "the last time England won the World Cup"- it certainly felt that long ago!
