Own this Cover Commemorating the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
This cover bears one of the first commemorative stamps issued during the 70-year reign of Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II. It was postmarked on June 3, 1953, the day after the coronation ceremonies with a LONG LIVE THE QUEEN slogan postmark.
The 2 pence, ½ penny stamp was issued on June 3, 1953, because the Post Office was closed on Coronation Day. It pictures a three-quarter view of the new Queen.
This First Day of Issue cover was postmarked either in London or Windsor. It may show signs of wear, as expected considering it is seven decades old and traveled from England to the US.
