Royal Mail issued a miniature sheet to commemorate the wedding of HRH
Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales, and Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles.
Following the decision that HRH the Prince of Wales would represent the Queen at the 8 April funeral of Pope John Paul II in Rome, Royal Mail announced it would postpone the sale of its Royal Wedding stamps for 24 hours until Saturday 9 April, but that the official day of issue would remain 8 April.
We produced covers for this sheet in a limited edition price £6.50.
For 8 April we used postmarks L9512 & L9513.
For 9 April we used postmark L9549 at the same price, £6.50
At least one double-dated PO FDC with
two complete sheets (one sideways) was sold on eBay for over £50.
We also have some double-dated covers at only £7.00 each. As Royal Mail did not allow cancels with the two different dates on the whole miniature sheet the sheets on these covers have been neatly split horizontally, with half postmarked 8 April and half 9 April. Only a very small number of our covers were prepared like this, and we have a few similar PO covers.
Miniature sheet mint - £2.95 - don't pay silly prices on eBay!
Sheet on PO FDC - £4.00
All prices exclude postage & packing. To order, or for any questions please e-mail us.
