1972 GB - DX1 - The Story of Wedgwood (£1) Trimmed Perfs on ½p


Issued 24.05.1972.

Possibly the most well-known because it was the first! Contains the unique and famous ½p LB (X842).

This booklet is being offered very cheap as the pane containing the ½p LB has had the perfs on the side of the stamp guillotined off. However this is still a good buy at this price and many of the 2½p RB and LB stamps are fine.

This book was issued to celebrate the anniversary of Josiah Wedgwood and contains four panes of definitive stamps (DP17-DP20).

Odd Fact :
The first and probably most well known Prestige Book because of the ½p left band stamp. The second one wasn't produced until nearly 8 years later - a bit different from today!
