GB Stamps, Errors & Flaws

 Errors, Flaws and Varieties in Queen Elizabeth ll Stamps of Great Britain

Booklets: Errors, Flaws & Varieties

I have been an avid collector of Stamps from 1960 to 1993. After scrutinising many booklets, I found these Errors, Flaws and Varieties. The Booklets are from Queen Elizabeth ll decimal stamps from 1973. These I have catalogued and put on my e-Shop.  Many are Newly Discovered (ND) and unique!
