Hi all,

My collection of Gerald King Wonderland stamps is currently a big mix of hundreds of stamps from different printings (different ages) etc. 

I am trying get the stamps sorted.. in regards to age/printing... 

It isn't as easy as it sounds and I am hoping that someone from this Forum can help me getting started by posting some pictures of the following:

1) One or more of the stamps from the original first printing of the Wonderland series...
2) One or more of the stamps from the second printing of the Wonderland series...
3) One or more of the stamps from the third printing of the Wonderland series...
4) One or more of the stamps from the fourth printing of the Wonderland series...
5) Examples of later printings... or other things that could be helpful

Thanks in advance...

/Jesper

Hi all,

Does anyone know what exact year (about 20 years ago) these "Gerald King - Newfoundland Airship Company" stamps were produced? ... and does have more information about them? ... I believe only 2 sets have been produced?



Thanks in advance...

What a brilliant little set of stamps!  Lucky you. 


I began this forum as a place to discuss and share ALL cinderella stamps. It is my first forum and is not perfect BUT I will endeavour to make it the best available.

Any positive help appreciated!

I don't know the exact answer but Gerald thinks it was 5 or 6 years ago. Mind you, knowing how time flies for us old folk it could just as well have been 20! 😜 . No more than 6 strips exist. Assuming Gerry and Jesper and I all have one who has the others? Come on, admit it.

Perhaps Gerry has 2 sets. Wasn't there kerfuffle when one set was posted on eBay and he withdrew them?

Inspired by Jesper's recent post, I've added the Newfoundland Airship Company to the Newfoundland page on Askme.

I can't spot where I've ever posted about the original Nefoundland Air essays that Gerry produced in 2003 and which caused a great stir at the time.  So you may all enjoy the whole page at the other end of this link.  http://www.askmeaboutstamps.com/?page_id=4147

This is very curious. The Newfoundland Airship Company stamps were produced in Cambridge, Massachusetts from 2004, I believe, by someone working at Harvard and with links to Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. I have a few of the stamps, an essay, a cover and a boarding pass all lovingly created and I also have the top stamp of this set that you have featured. Most of the stamps have frames taken from the stamps of Newfoundland and feature airships and whaling vessels. On the reverse, they have the word Cinderella printed multiple times (early issues were stamped with the word 'faux' on the back). They were sold on eBay on an auction basis and I do not know in what quantity they were produced. Therefore, I do not believe that Gerald designed this set but were probably, as with his other Newfoundland set, copies. I haven't posted much recently but I'll try to show what I have in a separate thread.

I love a mystery!  

Perhaps Keith could also ask Gerry what the true background to these stamps might be?


Happiness doesn't come from getting something we don't have, but through recognising and appreciating what we do have.
