  • They are currently in beta mode, meaning that they should not be relied upon yet as a source of truth and could change frequently. Please notify PSG if you come across values that do not make sense.
  • They are not based on catalogue values but on current dealer and auction listings. The reason for this is that catalogues tend to over-value stamps.

About Stamp

The accession to the throne of His Majesty King George VI necessitated the preparation of a new series of stamps bearing his portrait; he appeared in ordinary attire. The new issue of 1-cent, 2-cent, and 3-cent stamps released on 1st April, 1937, was the first series with the sovereign's portrait. He had been portrayed as Duke of York on the 2- cent brown in the King George V Silver Jubilee Canadian issue of 1935.
