The Royal Silver Wedding Anniversary 1948

in GB stamps

With Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary this week I thought this stamp might make a timely post - The Royal Silver Wedding Stamp issued in 1948 to celebrate 25 years of marriage between Queen Elizabeth II's parents King George VI and the Queen Consort, Elizabeth (later known throughout her long life after the death of her husband as Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother).

A particular curiosity of this commemorative design is that the heads face right, whereas the King or Queen's head always faces to the left on definitive stamps.
