Gibraltar Collection Page Scans
|The Gibraltar King George VI set of stamps was printed from 1938 until about 1952. The stamps were printed by De La Rue, so you can expect to find perforation changes, color shades, and variations in the paper and gum. In addition, there are watermark varieties as some stamps were printed on paper watermarked upright and some on paper watermarked sideways. Here are scans of what the watermarks will look like when seen from the back.|
The pages were created using information presented by W. J. W. Potter & Lt. Col. R. C. M. Shelton in their "The Printings of King George VI Colonial Stamps" which was published by Stamp Collecting Ltd. in December, 1952. The publication listed tables for each of the countries' issues that were included. The listings of "PSxx" were created to tie into the Potter & Shelton listings. They are unique to my collection, so won't tie into anything you might find familiar.
Based on the Potter & Shelton listings, I created an Excel spreadsheet showing the printings and their corresponding catalog numbers. This information is available for download below.
The pages are from my collection, and are identified
by the Commonwealth number for the specific date listed. See the corresponding
Gibbons and Scott numbers below. The page images were scanned in a larger
size and at a higher resolution so you can more easily see the details
used in viewing them. Feel free to select the page and let it download
to your screen and save it to your hard drive for viewing. If you are
using a PC, selecting the page will typically open it in Microsoft Photo
Viewer (or whatever you are using as your default). From there you can
enlarge the size for more close-up viewing. If you are using a phone -
go find a PC or a Mac. The images are 1200 pixels wide and you will go
mad trying to view them on your phone.
