This is part of the late Derek Dewhurst collection. Whilst nothing especially scarce is present, there is a good range of Australian coils incl leader strips, uncut sheets etc plus GB QV "Circular Delivery Company" stamps which were banned after a few months for providing services which undercut the GPO rates.
