    Princess Diana & Prince Charles Autographs on Christmas Card

    £1,950.00

    • Signed by Prince Charles and Prince Diana in 1982
    • Showing the couple with the young Prince William

    The marriage of the Prince & Princess of Wales, Prince Charles (1948-) and Princess Diana (1961-1997) remains one of the most talked about relationships in history. As such, both signatures, particularly Diana's, are highly sought after today.

    This stiff white greeting card measures 6" x 7" and is embossed with two gold crests. This autographed card features a colour photograph of the Prince of Wales, dressed in a crisp white shirt. A baby Prince William sits on Diana's lap.

    The 1982 card is addressed to Mrs. Williams and reads "With all good wishes for Christmas and the New Year" in strong black lettering. Underneath this printed greeting, Charles has signed in black fountain pen "and for the racing season! From Charles and ", Diana finishes simply with her autograph in blue ink alongside. The flourish of their black and blue fountain pens finishes with underlined emphasis under their names.

    The autographs are in excellent condition. Some wear to the cover due to previous mounting, signatures are unaffected.

    28mm, 2.99g.

    AEF - About Extremely Fine, well struck and nicely toned.

     

    Very handsome little coin, well struck with no weak areas and nicely toned.  However, what is particularly interesting about this coin is the very small 'privy mark' under the denomination.  This is engraved on the die and appears to be a small fish or a chalice on its side.  Very interesting and hitherto unrecorded.  Issued in the latter part of the Boy King's reign when he was only thirteen or fourteen years of age, is a superb contemporary portrait of Henry VIII's sickly son Edward VI. Just over a year or so later, in February 1553, at age 15, Edward fell ill.  When his sickness was discovered to be terminal, he and his Council drew up a "Devise for the Succession", attempting to prevent the country being returned to Catholicism.  Edward named his cousin Lady Jane Grey as his heir and excluded his half sisters, Mary and Elizabeth.  However, this was disputed following Edward's death and Jane was queen for only nine days before Edward's half-sister, Mary, was proclaimed Queen.  She reversed Edward's Protestant reforms, which nonetheless became the basis of the Elizabethan Religious Settlement of 1559.

    Canada 1875-92 Registration Stamps, SGR1, R7a, R8/9

    £1,950.00

    Canada 1875-92 Registration Stamps Unused in blocks of 4, SGR1, R7a, R8/9

    A fantastic and difficult to assemble collection of the earliest Registration stamps from Canada (2c, 5c and 8c) in fine quality blocks of four, the 2c and 8c blocks as marginal examples.

    Canada Registration stamps 2c orange marginal block of four from the foot of the sheet, SGR1. Large part Montreal imprint, large part original gum; one stamp with a tiny corner crease and some oxidisation on gum though remains of fine appearance.

    Canada Registration stamps 5c dull sea-green block of four, SGR7a. Fresh unused with large part original gum, the lower pair being unmounted mint. The upper pair each with a tiny thin speck, otherwise fine and an attractive multiple of this scarce shade.

    Canada Registration stamps 8c blue block of four from the lower right corner and showing trace of Montreal imprint, SGR8/9. A fine fresh example with large part original gum. A scarce multiple and highly attractive.

    The SG catalogue price for single example of all 12 stamps comes to a total value of £2,750. Consequently, the offer price of £1,950 is exceedingly attractive, particularly when factoring in the expected premium valuation associated with rarer blocks of four.
