We’re delighted to announce the winner of our £5,000 stamp competition – Steve Waldron from Portsmouth answered our thought provoking and engaging tiebreaker question:
‘The newly designed British Passport has a page devoted to the Penny Black Stamp. Which stamp would you choose to have in your passport and why?’
Steve’s answer was delivered with imagination and originality:
“The GV seahorses. The stamps contains a dramatic scene and are intricately engraved. The most beautiful of all GB stamps, which should be promoted to inspire people to investigate and take up philately.”
Launched in December, this is the biggest competition we’ve ever run. The premise was to allow collectors to spend £50 or more in the Stanley Gibbons Store or Marketplace before January 31st and they’d receive an invitation to enter – the lucky winner would receive £5,000 worth of stamps from our GB collection.
Steve claimed three striking GB items to add to his collection:
