Hi, 

I bought these two stamps on eBay last week... They were posted as "Gerald King Local Posts" ... 

I haven´t seen them before ... but maybe some of you know them and can confirm that they are Gerald Kings work (and maybe even tell some more about them)?

Hi Jesper.  They are certainly Gerald King issues.  I'm not sure I've seen them mint before.  They are used by Gerald on the reverse (usually) of his letters so not sold by him as cinderellas so far as I know.

I've had a look in my boxes and the only one I can spot quickly is the King of hearts tied to the back of a cover with an Ipswich postmark in 2014.  I have the feeling that I will have recycled any covers with only one of these on the back (I know - sacrilege!) so I'm not sure if there are clubs and spades as well.  Maybe others will be able to help.

Here's a link to the image I posted on the Askme facebook page at the time

I was rooting through my Gerald King heap today and came across an envelope to me with a King of Clubs on a "King's Local Post" label on the front.  Its value is one copper groat.  So I assume there is a spade label too in order to make a full set.

I'm having a rest from Wonderland, Snark & Lundy and getting up to date with the more obscure issues of Gerry King.

So I've added his reproduction of WWI labels from the magazine The Happy Home to the Miscellaneous pages on askme and you can find them just here.  Only 6 sheets exist.  Happy hunting!

I've also added two covers to the Alternative Burma page and these can be  seen at the bottom of this page.

A few Gerry King Alternative Australia sets have started to appear on eBay.  As they are very rare I thought I'd add details of them to the askmeaboutstamps website and you can see them here.  If you like swans and kangaroos you'll be well pleased.

I like the fact that the King of hearts is the high value card.

I've added a new page to the askme website to cover Gerry's Alternative GB issues.  I was going to call it GB stamps from unadopted essays (snappy title) but, when I was scanning them I realised that not all meet that description.

I don't know too much about the original frames/essays so, if you have any knowledge about the background to any of the issues that will help me to flesh out the website I'd be pleased to hear it.

Here is a link to the page.
