Welcome to my 5 for Friday blog post. Below are my top five picks for this week.
Any of these would make a fantastic gift for a loved one (or for yourself!).
P.S. You can view any of the items below in more detail by clicking on the image.
1 – 15th Anniversary of the Channel Tunnel
This lovely cover was produced to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Channel Tunnel in 2009. It features a stunning image of a Eurostar high speed train from the inaugural year, along with a Folkestone postmark.
This year sees us celebrate the 25th anniversary! Where has the time gone?
(Don’t forget to keep an eye on our website as we will be producing something special to celebrate this occasion later on in the year).
2 – The Sterling and Definitives Issues 1840 – 1970 – 3rd Edition
This is one of the most comprehensive catalogues of Sterling and Definitive Issues dating from 1840 to 1970, and is an absolute must have for any collector interested in cover collecting.
It contains detailed images of relevant postmarks for each issue, and has easy to reference catalogue prices and valuations, with an added section on forgeries and air letters.
3 – Neil Armstrong signed Apollo 11 cover
This stunning cover has been personally signed by none other than the first man to set foot on the moon, astronaut Neil Armstrong!
It’s a signed Apollo 11 US Navy Recovery Force cover with a USS Goldsborough 24th July landing day postmark.
This year sees us celebrate the 50th anniversary of the historic moon landing and we have something very special planned, so do keep an eye on our website.
SP(A11)01 £2,250.00 (interest free payments are available on this item. Find out more information here)
4 – Tribute to Red Rum signed by Sir Tony McCoy OBE
This stunning Racehorse Legends first day cover features three times Grand National winner Red Rum en-route to his hat trick win at Aintree, and has been signed by champion jockey Sir Tony McCoy OBE.
5 – The Royal Wedding of HRH Prince Harry and Miss Meghan Markel
For my final pick I have chosen this lovely cover celebrating the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
From the outfits to the music to the guests, the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex) was a day to remember.
The couple exchanged vows and rings before the Queen and 600 guests at St George’s Chapel.
Wearing a dress by British designer Clare Waight Keller, Ms Markle was met by Prince Charles, who walked her down the aisle.
Our cover features a stunning image of the happy couple on their wedding day.
