Notes: These ‘double-dated’ covers were all issued between 1998 and 2003. Royal Mail had embarked on a series of issues which reproduced the first stamps issued by the Post Office to feature our Queen. These old stamps (issued 1952-53) were redesigned with decimal values.
To these covers I have added one of the new ‘Long to Reign Over Us’ stamps which have been franked with one of the new postmarks for the ‘Long to Reign Over Us’ issue of 9th Sept 2015. These new Royal Mail stamps commemorates the historic landmark of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II becoming the longest reigning UK monarch, with Queen Victoria’s reign of 63 years and 216 days being exceeded by The Queen on 9th September 2015.
