Reverting to your GVI pictures, you probably have these, issued by Wills in February 1937 (one of many sets that appeared in advance of the coronation) -

Beautiful items outside my budget......
Millenium auctions 2019

Note how the Queen's bust (lower left) is possibly a correct imitation, but leans forward, unbalancing the (eventual) stamp.

I have the long set of the Commonwealth peace set in a rather nice small springbuck album. Not worth a lot apart from the Canada and Hong Kong issues, but they are, of course, all hinged.

Lovely presentation, Frank.
Nothing wrong with a good hinge, unless you collect for money, rather than with passion.

Some of mine were hinged whilst the collector was having a Ham sandwich,
hence severe tone spots. Can be removed along with the gum.

Unsure what a full set of Peace Omnibus CV is at present.
