thanks

These crop up on eBay regularly also

I'm with Bobby - it's the fun of the chase rather than buying a job lot

I made a set of pages for the KG VI Coronation Omnibus series. They are available as a FREE download from http://www.thestampweb.com/albums.html .

Scroll down to the last grouping on the page - TOPICALS - and select the KG VI Coronation Omnibus pdf file. If you have a copy of the AlbumEasy software, you can also download the text file (.txt) so you can customize the pages or add to them.

Great Britain issued a single stamp for the issue and Cook Islands & Niue are the New Zealand issue but overprinted.

I always thought Southern Rhodesia had a very attractive set, as they did for the 1935 Silver Jubilee.

I agree with Bobby. Here's that page (with stamps) from my KG VI Coronation Omnibus set.

mikwizzy - I think you mean "typical", whereas the Southern Rhodesia is "atypical".

out of interest does anyone know why the issue dates for the coronation set varied from country to country?

The majority were issued on 12th May (a Wednesday)
Canada issued first on the 10th (a Monday)
Cook Islands issued last on 1st June (a Tuesday)

I though it might be logistics for some of the more remote countries but that doesn't seem to explain the variation

I don't know for sure but it is possible that all of the common design were issued by Crown Agencies on a single date while the others, e.g. Britain, Southern Rhodesia, were issued by the local administrations on dates of their choosing.

I thought about that also

However, Ascension for example used the standard Crown agent set but issued on 19th May

That should be NIUE (not Nuie).
Cook Islands, like Niue, overprinted the New Zealand set.
Nauru and New Guinea used the same design as Papua.
Nauru 10/5/1937
New Guinea 18/5/1937

collecting the issues on cover would be somewhat more of a challenge

That is what I have been trying to do! Trust me it's hard to do on covers!

these covers do crop up regularly in auctions an on eBay although the quality can be difficult
Be aware that they're sometimes shown as FDC's but the cancel shows otherwise - I think because it's assumed that the 12th May was the issue date

Illustrated FDCs are also available in all sorts of wonderful designs

Over the years I've managed to find FDCs of most of these but I'm still missing 4 countries

I've been accumulating the Michael Sanders cachets for this issue for a few years now, and I'm no where near the level of completion I'd like. :)

Mikwizzy I only have about 30 odd covers so far, but I grab them when I see them going cheaply, the strangest one is Australia's version...no big deal just a couple of very ordinary stamps!

Billsey...great cover!
