Made with real British dark blue 1d Wilding stamps, first issued after Queen Elizabeth II's coronation, they were in circulation during the 1950s and 1960s. These stunning blue British stamps are iconic images of Queen Elizabeth II, based on a photographic portrait by Dorothy Wilding. In the picture the Queen is wearing the Diamond State Diadem made for King George IV in the 1820s. Four symbolic flowers surround the Queen, representing the four countries that make up the United Kingdom.
Each pair of cufflinks is presented in a hinged black cufflink box, with information about the stamp and another whole stamp in the box lid. The stamps are set into high quality silver coloured, nickel plated cufflinks (brass base), with hard wearing swivel barrel fittings. They are then covered with a crystal clear resin dome that magnifies and protects the stamps, making them durable and scratch proof. Cufflink diameter, 20mm, stamp insert diameter 18mm x 18mm square. These are used stamps and as such, will have a faint postmark, similar to the one shown.
