1954 Queen Elizabeth II 8d 'Red' - Mini Stamp Print with Framing Boards

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

We’ve made our catalogue of stamp art prints into smaller sizes, perfect for gifts or to add a little pop of history on your walls. These prints come mounted and ready to frame in a handy 8”x10” size.  

Following the death of King George VI it was decided that the stamps currently in use depicting the late King be replaced as soon as possible by a full set depicting Queen Elizabeth II.  

All values from 1/2d to 1s 9d were produced from two designs by L C Mitchell, the high values, 1s 6d to 10s were from an illustration by J Berry. The lower values of this issue (1/2d to 8d) can be easily distinguished from a later issue by the four stars in the bottom right corner of each stamp.
