23.05.2000 | 1953 Coronation Throne Room, Postmarked at LondonBUY NOW £60
£1 (Reprint of 1/3d Coronation stamp)
Notes: This cover was originally issued to raise funds after the devastating fire at Windsor Cover. I was commissioned to supply covers by the Palace souvenir shop. I had a few of the covers remaining which I subsequently used for various projects. The covers are gold foiled and feature The Throne Room. The £1 green Coronation stamp is a Royal Mail reissue of the 1/3d stamp issued for the 1953 Coronation - same design but different denomination
