    On the subject of DPRK, here is a booklet I bought recently along with some stamps. It seems to be from the 70s:

    Hello all, last wednesday I visited the Museum of London, to see the special exhibition for the anniversary of the Great Fire of London.
    While there I also visited the rest of the exhibits, one of which is the 'Gold State Coach' that was built (completed) in 1762 and has been used for every Coronation since that of King George IV.

    This magnificent coach is gilded all over. It is 24 feet long, 8 feet 3 inches wide, and 12 feet high; the pole is 12 feet 4 inches long and the total weight is 4 tons. The harness, originally made by Ringstead, is of rich red morocco leather. The State Coach is adorned on the sides, front and back with panels painted by Giovanni Battista Cipriani, a Florentine historical painter and engraver who came to London in 1755.

    This stamp issued for the 50th Anniversary of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II

    Date of issue: 2003-06-02

    Regards, James.

    I am not sure if this is a stamp or a cut out of postcard, although the paper is too thin. It doesnt have gum and the paper is greasy.

    You are probably right,it maybe a cutout from
    an envelope or aerogramme or the like.
    The set and souvenir sheets "80th Anniv.of
    the Bulgarian Post- and Telegraph-Services
    were issued on May 4th and 16th,1959.
    Set and ss. contain a stamp of the above
    design,however with a face value of 16 St..
    Stamps from the s.s. (imperforated) were
    printed in purple on yellow background.

    You are right Don. Especially for me the engraved ones. Hopefully in the near future I'll be looking to them, Spain and the nordic country's for my engravers.
