265 imageGreat Britain 1944 ½d "Silver Jubilee" Nazi propaganda forgery, SG453VAR. A very fine block of nine inscribed "This War is a Jewish War" and depicting Stalin instead of King George V. Printed on wavy lined watermarked paper. A scarce and high quality block. These fascinating and historically interesting forgeries were printed by the Third Reich in 1944 in Germany as Hitler's Third Reich started to crumble. The designs from the GB 1935 King George V ½d Silver Jubilee stamps were altered to promote anti Russian and anti Jewish propaganda. These forgeries have a broad appeal to collectors including those interested in overprints, the interesting and the unusual, Judaica and Word War II history. A very worthwhile addition to any collection. (Image)

268 imageGreat Britain 1951 2s6d-£1 "Festival" High values, SG509/12. Very fine unmounted mint, with full original gum, set of four. This beautifully designed set of King George VI high value stamps was issued on 3 May 1951 to celebrate the centenary of the Great Exhibition of 1851. The Festival of Britain in 1951 aimed to illustrate the British contribution to civilisation past, present and future in the arts, science and technology, and industrial design. Pressure was put on the Post Office to issue a special set of stamps to celebrate the event. 12 artists were invited to submit their ideas for the designs. The four stamps finally chosen depicted HMS Victory (2s6d), White Cliffs of Dover (5s), St. George and the Dragon (10s) and the Royal Court of Arms (£1). They are a lovely set of stamps. It is not surprising they have become one of the most popular sets of British commemorative stamps ever issued. (Image)
