1952 King George VI Provisionals
If you have any questions or comments please contact us - we'd love to hear from you.
King George VI died on the 6th of February 1952 and it became obvious that
stocks of the George VI stamps should be used up. In December of that year
an increase in postal charges were met by surcharging the George VI 1d
green stamp 3d.
In September 1953, an over-supply of ½d
brown George VI stamps were surcharged 1d to use them up.
the second time that stamps from the 1938 King George VI
issue had been
surcharged to cover increased postage rates, the first was during the
Second World War. Those stamps are listed separately under 1941 King George VI
