First Issue of 2018:
Queen Elizabeth II - Life & Service

To commemorate HM Queen Elizabeth II accession to the throne on 6 February 1952, and to recognise The Queen's dedication to the service of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth, the CILP has issued a set of five se-tenant stamps on 6 February 2018.

Entitled, "Queen Elizabeth II - Life & Service", the stamps show four portraits from HM The Queen's life from 1928 to 2013. A fifth stamp bears her Armorial Banner, often referred to as the Royal Standard. Across the base of the stamps is a quote from HM The Queen's accession oath; "The things which I have here before promised, I will perform and keep."

Only 84 sets have been produced as a se-tenant strip with full perforations and gum. Each stamp measures approximately 31x31mm. A very limited edition of First Day Covers and FDI postcards have been produced (due to technical and aesthetic reasons the se-tenant strip has been broken to accommodate hand applied FDI cancellations). 

This issue (subject to availability) can be obtained from Alpha Thematics on eBid UK
