Hi Keith,
I have the signed proofs that goes along with the stamps (if you want you are welcome to add them to the "Naked ladies and hats"-page):
  Lucky devil.  I usually only use images of items I own but I might make an exception in this case.  Of course you could always just give them to me!

As far as I understand "Ile Chapeau" (Hat Island) is an independent island on River Seine where Ladies must wear the latest fashion in hats dated around 1900-1920
   I don't think I knew the story - although it would take weeks of ploughing through Gerald's e-mails to check.  I'll use the information to update the website.  Thanks.

All Gerald King stamps are worth more than any of the others.  The rarest are usually the ones without any errors at all Confused

After a wait of only about 33 years there is a new Wonderland Christmas card.  I've added details of it, and its predecessor, to the Askme website and they can be found on the end of this link.

As the envelopes include Wonderland stamps and the envelope and card are both signed by Gerry they seem more like collectors' items than something you'd actually put in the post to some ingrate.  They have appeared on eBay; I'm not sure how many there will be (the eBay listing says there are only 3 sets left at the moment) so get in early if you are interested.

Mine came with a letter from Gerry that might help.  But I've been made to tidy everything away for Christmas.  I'll see if I can find it when I'm allowed to mess the house up again in the new year!

Hi, 

I bought these two stamps on eBay last week... They were posted as "Gerald King Local Posts" ... 

I haven´t seen them before ... but maybe some of you know them and can confirm that they are Gerald Kings work (and maybe even tell some more about them)?

Gerald King - King´s Local Post - Bramfield Suffolk England:

Hi Jesper.  They are certainly Gerald King issues.  I'm not sure I've seen them mint before.  They are used by Gerald on the reverse (usually) of his letters so not sold by him as cinderellas so far as I know.

I've had a look in my boxes and the only one I can spot quickly is the King of hearts tied to the back of a cover with an Ipswich postmark in 2014.  I have the feeling that I will have recycled any covers with only one of these on the back (I know - sacrilege!) so I'm not sure if there are clubs and spades as well.  Maybe others will be able to help.

Here's a link to the image I posted on the Askme facebook page at the time
