Just reading through the latest issue of the GB Philatelic Society’s newsletter and I came across a slightly disheartening comment from from the Surface Printed consultant in his annual report, which said:
As reported in previous years, there has been no interest in the colourful Jubilee issues despite very interesting and collectable pieces and usages still being available at reasonable prices
I’m pleased to say that I have had a few people contact me over the past year. Some asking for help and some happy to offer it! So a big thank you to those that have contributed. I try my best to answer any questions I receive, but I haven’t always done so in the past so apologies to anyone who never received an answer.
So please feel free to contact me with anything relating to the Jubilee issue, and if you’re a member of the GB Philatelic Society (which you should be!) then don’t forget you can contact them with any questions you may have as well.

I am quite surprised by the comments in the newsletter as I assumed the Jubilee issues were very popular. Certainly there is quite a lot of stuff for sale wherever you look and somebody must be buying it!
Anyway, many thanks for this blog which I always find extremely useful and informative. I think I may have said this in the past but I know you have an extremely (and interesting) job and I know myself how easy it is to forget to reply to an e-mail.
I agree with these sentiments and made similar comments to the GBPS consultant Peter Young . I collect certain Jubilees and the comments about “reasonable prices” surprised me as most stuff is pricey!! Never won on EBay without a challenge etc. Dealers prices can be amazing.
