Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Platinum Jubilee - Stamp Sheet of Four
A Sheet of 4 Stamps from the 'Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Platinum Jubilee' issue.
This £10 stamp, issued to mark the Platinum Jubilee, features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II taken by Dorothy Wilding in 1952, the year of Her Majesty’s accession. The Queen can be seen wearing the George IV State Diadem which she also wore to her Coronation in 1953. The stamp has been printed with several special ink effects to reflect the nature of the occasion.
The stamp sheet gives the discerning collector access to all the printer’s marks and any additional information on the selvedges. The selvedges include the traffic lights which is a term used by collectors to denote the check dots (or colour dabs) printed in the sheet margins of stamps printed by modern offset litho or photogravure methods. They assist in checking that all the colours have printed correctly.
Most of our selvedge sheets also contain a plate number; a numeral, occasionally with a letter suffix, usually inscribed on the sheet margins to denote the plate from which the stamps were printed - for example 1A.
All our mint/cto products are carefully prepared by our own team and supplied in glassine bags to ensure you receive them in pristine condition.
