Hi everyone,

I bought a box of collectible items and this stamp was in it. I had a thorough search online but I can’t seem to find any information about this exact one, there are some very similar but nothing I can see that is identical. Is anyone able to help with what this stamp is and if it is worth anything?

Thanks for your help,

Hi Paula! Welcome to the fora... nice to see another one of us gals join! laugh

What you have there is a quite common stamp, Scott catalogue #235, 1/2 pence, deep green King George VI stamp, which was issued between 1937-39, following his coronation. It is still quite common and doesn't have any real value - in fact I was just sorting some British stamps yesterday myself, and have a whole little pile of 5 or 6 of 'em going as we speak. That having been said, that one there seems to be used, and in very good condition.

There ya go... hope this helps. Are you a collector yourself? If not, I hope this will be a door to you to starting. It's a fascinating hobby! And this is a great community to belong to. Small but mighty! smile d
