Magazine Description

In this issue

In the January issue we investigate the long and distinguished history of Royal Mail ships, accumulating tales of derring-do and disaster in roughly equal measure as they delivered correspondence around the world. We give some pointers for collecting British postal history from the reign of King George V, with the focus on the definitive series in use from 1912-34, and we consider the advantages and pitfalls of using expertising services to certify potentially valuable stamps. Our new series on the Great Engravers looks at the superb work of Pierre Bequet, mostly for France and the French colonies, for while our regular Commonwealth Classics feature celebrates the evocative 1905 Victoria Falls set from Rhodesia. Our news pages have full details of Royal Mail’s commemorative issue for the Royal Platinum Wedding Anniversary, a first look at the special issues planned for 2018, news of a major setback for Stanley Gibbons’ policy of marketing stamps as investment portfolios, and auction highlights from around the world.
