Stanley Gibbons Royal Wedding Stamp Collection 1981, 3 Volume Set; The Royal Wedding, H.R.H. Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, 29th July 1981. Published by Stanley Gibbons Ltd, London.

Stanley Gibbons produced these sets of Royal Wedding stamps and binders and offered the stamps on a monthly subscription basis. Sets of stamps were sent out every month for around a £30 per month subscription, and this continued, we believe, for around 3 years, meaning that it would cost over £1,000 to complete the set.

This collection comprises 3 Volumes, each with slipcase. 2 have pictorial bindings and one is plain. Binders are padded beige in colour, with steel ring bindings. There are hundreds of mint condition stamps from all over the world, all on the them of the Royal Wedding, mounted on titled country/territory pages. There is the occasional page with a few missing or detached stamps, but the vast majority are all in position, and in great condition.

The slipcases are a little bumped and marked, with some wear and tear at the opening edges causing some splitting at the seams, but all are intact, and the albums themselves are in fine condition.

Volumes comprise:

1. Aitutaki to Guernsey.

2. Guyana to Pitcairn Islands.

3. Samoa to Zil Eloigne Sesel.

Text in English.

Weight; A heavy set of approximately 6.14g unpacked (the set of 3).

Dimensions: Including slipcase, each volume approximately 329mm high x 263mm wide x 50mm deep.
