1937 King George VI Coronation Album Collection
Complete Collection of 202 Mint King George VI Stamps plus Album
The reluctant King! Raised in the shadow of his older brother Edward, George (known to his family as "Bertie") was awkwardly shy, plagued with health problems, and spoke with a stammer. The 2010 Oscar-nominated film "The King's Speech" tells the fascinating story of his efforts to overcome his stammer and find his voice, culminating in an inspirational speech to the British people on the brink of war.
Historic Mint First British Coronation Omnibus!
On May 12, 1937, Great Britain and 56 members of the British Empire celebrated the Coronation of King George VI with this attractive collection of 1937 coronation stamps. After the sudden death of King George V and the scandalous abdication of King Edward VIII, the British Empire gladly accepted the shy, soft-spoken George VI as their new King. This popular Omnibus issue depicts a youthful George VI with his wife Queen Elizabeth, and was surprisingly printed with just a few months' notice. This spectacular mint collection of King George VI stamps is displayed in a gold-titled album and includes the desirable sets from Hong Kong and Newfoundland!
