Today’s the 175th anniversary of Penny Black and the postage stamp, but instead of talking about ‘the Queen’, I thought I’d write about the ‘the King’ and his companions. For us stamp collectors any reference to ‘the King’ often times means King George V, one of the greatest stamp collectors of all times, but for rest of the world the King usually equals Elvis. So what do You think King George V (or for that matter Queen Victoria) would have said if he was displayed the stamps of today featuring Elvis and other pop culture characters? Would he had become the great collector he was, or is he turning over in one’s grave? Here’s my few cents worth about about it.
