Powerful Pound — Weekly Feature #402

A mighty stamp embodying the power of the British Empire.  This is a  large-sized engraved issue with a very high face value, especially  for the day.  Issued in honour of the 9th U.P.U. congress held in London in 1929.  This stamp features the image of St. George slaying The Dragon, an allegorical representing Britain triumphing over her enemies.  This example is a used cds Very Fine which, it should be noted, is by far nicer than the usual for this issue, as most stamps of this denomination would have found use on parcels.  Stanley Gibbons #438 with a cat. of £550.  This powerful Classic is yours for $550.
