£7 was the annual cost for a b&w TV licence in 1971-73. It looks like that one was cancelled in 1973. Price adjusted to 2013 values, that is about £85.

Here are the restored images for my 1908 one sheet British Passport signed by the then Foreign Secretary, Sir Edward Grey. He was the longest continuously serving person in that position from 1905 to 1916. He played a key diplomatic role in trying to avoid The First world War but, of course, failed.

There are some interesting Russian revenues on the reverse, shown on the last 2 scans. The last scan is shown upside down since this is how the revenue has been applied:

I recently acquired this Allied Force Permit from 1950. It is a single piece of card folded in three, so it is a little awkward to show the entire document. It was issued in London to Stanley Mee for travel to Austia. It features a $4 travel permit stamp. Here, then, are 3 scans:




Here are other examples of the stamps that I have:

I love the subtleties that hot-metal presses provide - the spacing of the text, the variations in the weight and density of the printed ink; and the lack of apparent care about getting the block of text bang centre (or even square) on the page.

So often when you see 'aged' layouts mocked up for old-fashioned documents this is lost as it has been produced with modern software and the operator at the keyboard knows no different.  Lovely original stuff.
Happiness doesn't come from getting something we don't have, but through recognising and appreciating what we do have.
