King Edward VII 1st issue die proofs for the head
To replace Queen Victoria's head, otherwise there were no changes to the design for King Edward VII on the first issue.

Die proof for the Colonies & Dominions



Die proof for the UK


First issue



[ex Howard Lunn, Tony Brown, Michael Brill]



Second issue



1st day of issue of a 6d 2nd issue, 1 July 1903. First ever 6d UK Postal Order, first UK Postal Order to have a counterfoil, and first time the regulations were printed on the reverse.



"Specimen" overprint. ex Jack Harwood

Ex Jack Harwood

Contract note modelled on a contemporary Edward VII Postal Order



The Chief Chemist, "Tatcho" Laboratories, Lincoln's Inn Fields, London.
The sole object of this special concession is to enable the public to prove the revelation that "Tatcho" works in cases of baldness.
Edwardian replica advertising Postal Order used by "Tatcho" laboratories in 1903.





This postal order was not cashed within the three month limit from the last day of the month of issue. In 1964 (sic) a Mrs Knight sent the Postal Order to the Head Post Office in Farnham, Surrey, where a "payment authorised" cancellation was applied to the reverse of the postal order (see below). Fortunately this postal order survived, issued with the scarce first type stamp box.



4th issue
Second type stamp box: with heading "Postage Stamps".



Issued at the 4th Philatelic Congress, Margate, 1912, with special date stamp.

Those notes are very nice.

The 4th. Philatelic Congress one of 1912 is a very unusual King Edward VII Posthumous Issue under King George V note.How rare are postal orders bearing these early commemorative datestamps?

Aidan.
