Finally George VI's back!

Today with the 90th anniversary stamp issue in Britain, I get something honoring King George VI.
Then Albert Duke of York holding his first daughter Elizabeth circa 1930, picture by Marcus Adams.

Of course, the minisheet by Ranald Mackechnie with younger George is lovely and more dignified than the Summer 2013 stampede among some postal operators of the Commonwealth to be the first to photocopy a prepersonalised stamp on his birth.

The rest of the issue can be watched and is described on Norvic Philatelics website and blog.
