St Helena / Liberia Golden Jubilee Cover
In 2002 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Golden Jubilee 1952-2002. To honour this event the island of St. Helena issued a special crown showing the Queen’s crown on a cushion and the word ‘Accession’. Mercury Covers put this unusual crown into a large sized First Day Cover (FDC) with two $35 stamps honouring the Queen from Liberia. It was then cancelled with a special date cancellation. The crown is in Prooflike condition and is most unusual and one you just don’t find around. The cover also has a large full colour double photograph of the Queen. We were only able to get 50 of these large Crown Covers, after all, they are now over 18 years old.
