1909 King Edward VII Official
The new penny 'Dominion' stamp and several of the King Edward VII
stamps were overprinted 'official' for use by government
If you have any questions or comments please contact us - we'd love to hear from you.
Mint stamps marked 'Official' were not
"officially" allowed to be sold mint to collectors until 1913 and
this is one reason why mint copies are rarer.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year
