Hello. I wonder if anyone could help please.

I have a Stanley Gibbons flyer, A3 size folded so it has 4 x A4 sides. It is for the 1981 Royal Wedding, advertising, "A Valuable and Historic Philatelic Souvenir from Stanley Gibbons". The front page consists mainly of a photograph of Westminster Abbey. But, of course, the wedding was actually held at St Paul's Cathedral.

I was living overseas at the time of the engagement and was given this flyer by someone who worked for the Philatelic Bureau.

I've often wondered if it is worth anything because of the error, other than novelty value. Could anyone please advise?

Hi Wraf,

Westminster Abbey was the funeral church place so that's odd?

You see these on Ebay every now and again but I cannot ever think of hearing about the St Pauls being replaced with Westminster Abbey?

The problem as to value is just how many of these are in circulation if it is an error, Westminster Abbey would be where they normally would have got wed so it maybe was a pre circular? If that is the case and not many were printed it could be worth a few Bob!

I would email Stanley Gibbons and ask them but I would imagine there will be many of these around, its not the sort of thing to be a one off, UNLESS it was a proof to publication.

That's where I would go anyway with that one.

Sorry cannot be of more help but it was not the sort of thing I collected.

Julian
