In amongst my collection of Gerald King issues there are a fair number of single sets unrelated to anything else - clearly the product of Gerald's fertile imagination when something has caught his attention fleetingly.

So I've added a Miscellaneous page to the askme website and added the first two.  Naked ladies and hats.  I'll add others from time to time.

I know lots of you like Revenue stamps.  So, for a treat, I have added two such issues to the Gerald King miscellaneous page.

They were both produced in 2000 for The Revenue Society.  The Canada stamp was commissioned as an "essay" and given to guests at the Philatelic Congress Banquet.  I don't suppose anyone has a copy of that which they are willing to pass on to me in gratitude for me adding the issues to askme?

Click here and scroll down the page past the naked ladies and the hats.

I've recently discovered that Gerry produced a Bahrain Camel Post stamp in the mid-1980's.  I've none of the stamps yet but do own the aluminium printing plates used in the litho printing process.

I do also now have my hands on a redesign of the stamp .  The original plates and revised issue can be seen here on the Askme website.

I've discovered that I do have two blocks of the original Bahrain stamps!!  Discovered in a house move and perhaps making up for the things I can't find yet.

So I've updated the askme website to include these.  Here are the little beauties!

If only..!!  I've loads of Gerry King aluminium plates and could swamp the market with Wonderland stamps in new colours and make a killing.  Co-incidentally my new home was converted from a printers in 1980 but they didn't leave any machines behind. Cry

I recently purchased a couple of blocks of the original Bahrain Camel Post stamps. I was fortunate insofar as they were not identified as being by Gerald King but I was able to recognise them from Keith's images. There used to be a pecking order for Gerald's stamps in this order; Wonderland, Lundy, Sark and Everything else with this later category being more readily affordable. These days almost anything by him commands a good price. Anyway, here are the stamps:

Hi Keith,

I see that you have posted the Ile Chapeau stamps from Gerald King ... Great stamps ... 

I have the signed proofs that goes along with the stamps (if you want you are welcome to add them to the "Naked ladies and hats"-page):

Ile Chapeau - Signed Proofs (1 of 2)

Ile Chapeau - Signed Proofs (2 of 2)

Do you know the story behind the stamps?

As far as I understand "Ile Chapeau" (Hat Island) is an independent island on River Seine where Ladies must wear the latest fashion in hats dated around 1900-1920

BR
Jesper
