Massive and Superb 1912 1d Charles Dickens UK Memorial stamp. $A50


When the Charles Dickens Centenary was celebrated in 1912, a high powered London Committee (including US President Roosevelt!) was established, to collect funds for the benefit of the descendants of this great writer.

The other heavyweights on this Committee included The Earl Of Rosebery, (Lord Chief Justice etc. of the UK) Lord Tennyson, author Thomas Hardy, US President Theodore Roosevelt, Lord Strathcona, Lord Avebury, and 100 other high profile Dickins lovers!

There were no special commemorative UK postage stamps planned for Dickens, very oddly, so the Committee had a special one privately printed - in a very professional manner, from recess printed, steel engraved intaglio plates, on heavy, handmade, specially watermarked paper!

Clean and flat unused, and fresh and attractive, superb perfs and centering, and totally free of the usual hinges, thins, creases, and typical gook and gunk and ageing etc, near always seen on these type stamps, after 110 years.

It is an impressive steel engraved Cinderella label printed on handmade paper. The stamps carry the wording "A Tribute to Genius".


Massive & Superb *1912* 1d Charles Dickens UK Memorial stamp with Easel and Palette Watermark

"A Tribute To Genius" stamp issue.

A massive item as you can see - each about 4 times the size of an Australia Kangaroo stamp!

Beautifully steel engraved recess intaglio printed .. by Raphael Tuck & Co of London and New York.

Even has an ornate watermark of artists pallet and easel - photo of it taken above - Far more attractive than most dreary official Postage STAMP issues of the time! :lol: :lol:

Image

112 Years since THIS stamp was issued, and of course is more than 200 years since the event depicted, of Charles Dickens Birth.

Never seen or owned this for ages. As I type, just $US32!

$A50 plus $3 Global Post

As most know - I do NO fairs or shows, have NO shop, and do NOT bother with ebay or other auctions. I buy endless bulk lots from Estates, and distress sales etc, in this massive city, and offer it here at NETT prices for fast turnover. NO "20% Buyer Fees" to add to my prices, as in auction!

All stampboard lots under $A200 are mailed Unreg’d, as reported delivery problems are near nil. If Reg’d is required, STATE that on order form – cost is extra $A4 local, and minimum $A13 extra foreign. 'All risk' Insurance is always possible if required, at $A2 per $100 covered - again it must be specified on order form.

As per stampboard convention - this lot is offered exclusively to board members - and on no other sales venue.

For members who make a BANK TRANSFER payment you WILL generally get your goods faster, as it saves me some hassle - but you MUST email me the confirmation number etc - many "forget"! :)
