Spink are delighted to present The Lady Joan Joicey Collection of Great Britain

Lady Joan acquired her stamp collection over many years following initial purchases of Penny Blacks and other Line Engraved stamps in 1927. Additions to the collection in the following years include some wonderful and unique items, for example, a corner pair of “V R” Officials, with the plate letter and inscription, and an exceptionally fresh pair of the very popular plate 116 ‘Cardiff Penny’. There are many other important and historic items that could elevate new collections to greatness. We know that reading this catalogue will be a genuine pleasure for you to the same extent that it is for us to present it.
