  • Description
  • 1936 KEVIII Coronation: 1d COMPOSITE PHOTOGRAPHIC PROOF ESSAY affixed over perforated paper, the whole mounted on thick card.
  • An unadopted but near-to-KGVI-issued design illustrating development of the concept intended for use celebrating the coronation of King Edward VIII (who abdicated December 10th).
  • Manuscript notation "As prepared in Nov 1936 for King Edward VIII Coronation issue but not printed."
  • Some light foxing to perforation surrounds.
  • An exceptional and important proof showpiece for this proposed issue, one of few such proof pieces prepared in anticipation of the reign of KEVIII.
  • These essays are typical of proof material of this period of South African philately during which design and production was in-house by the Government Printer, Pretoria.
