Society Articles


A quarterly series of articles describing the varieties on stamps issued during the reign of KGVI as well as other associated information, was published in Gibbons Stamp Monthly, from August 1986 to May 2005. The author was Richard Lockyer, who owns the copyright. He has kindly offered to make them available to members and this extra page has been added to the KGVICS website. The index gives ready access to individual articles as pdf-files. If you are using Chrome or Microsoft Edge browser clicking the links will display a pdf of the article which can either be read immediately or downloaded for later. If you are using Mozilla Firefox, then clicking a link will automatically download the pdf to your "Downloads" folder. To read the file you either click the download icon in top right corner of the browser window or click Ctrl+J.
Unfortunetely, some of the reproduced pages are slanted, but when originally photocopied there was no intention to make them available for public use, but for safety in case of computer failure.
These files have been available on Tom Cusick's site but Tom anticipates closing the site in a year or so. Our society is therefore very grateful to both him and Richard Lockyer for allowing us to host the articles as well. Tom has also asked that we host his library of images of listed KGVI varieties. We plan to take up his very generous offer and upload these in the near future. In the meantime do visit The Flaws Page.
