Magazine Description

In this issue

In our April issue, we investigate the first stamp issue of the Turks Islands, 150 years ago, with its runaway postmaster and its many overprint varieties. We also go in search of the lowest value stamps of the 19th century, finding them in the Spanish colonies in the dying days of a once-mighty empire. Closer to home, we explain how Britain’s postal strike of 1971 boosted postal history rather than depressed it, and we study the history of natural landscapes as a theme on GB stamps. You can also read how India’s King George V definitives and the one and only issue from a Saharan oasis both make great collectables in their very different ways. We have full details of Royal Mail’s commemorative set for David Bowie and an exciting discovery for Machin collectors, plus all our regular coverage of world news, auction highlights, events and new issues.
