George VI stamp find in mixed bag!

in GB stamps

One of the fun sides to buying the occasional mixed bag of stamps is that you'll inevitably find the odd rarity that pays back your minimal investment. For example, I was delighted to come across this George VI  £1 brown (SG 478b).  First issued on 1 October 1948 this stamp is actually harder to find in good used condition than mint! It was the final stamp in the "Royal Arms" set of six which comprised the 2s 6d brown, 5s red and 10s dark blue issued in 1939, and the 2s 6d yellow-green and 10s ultramarine, which were both issued in 1942.
