Wonderful King George VI Postal Stationery

A Great Chocolate Theme Item

We acquired this gorgeous 1951 KGVI postal stationery item. It was printed to private order and impressed with KG6 ½d orange and 1½d green stationery heads making the 2d rate.

This lovely pristine item is an advertising card for ‘Smarties’ the sugar coated chocolate buttons made by Rowntree of York.

We offered this in County Philatelic Auctions March 2001 mail bid sale at an estimate of £30. We had 8 bids on it. It sold at £55. The top bid was £65.
