I didn't know that

Came across a mention in the London Philatelic Journal of 1906 about the London International Philatelic Exhibition of the same year:

H.R.H. PRINCE EDWARD OF WALES (Liberia).—A fine collection of unused
stamps, mostly in pairs, practically complete from the first perforated issue. All these
stamps are worthy of attention through their superb condition, and nearly all have the
full original gum.

He was President of the Royal Philatelic Society until he became king in 1910

Wonder what happened to his stamps!

Comments

  • I remember reading about that and several other noted Liberian exhibitions. I am betting we all probably have some of those stamps in our collections.
  • Travis,
    I'm slowly going through the old copies of the Journal which are now available online. It;s surprising how often Liberia issues crop up
