the greatest postage stamp ever - the 1929 PUC pound
I got quite excited when I read that NZ Post were doing a Machin for their “Queen Elizabeth II - 60th Anniversary of the Coronation” issue.
Until I saw it.
And she’s looking the wrong way
a wasted opportunity for NZ to release a stamp worth collecting.

Granny Takes a Trip was a boutique opened in February 1965 at 488 Kings Road in London’s Chelsea, by Nigel Waymouth, his girlfriend Sheila Cohen and John Pearse. The shop, which was acquired by Freddie Hornik in 1969, remained open until the mid-70s and has been called the “first psychedelic boutique in Groovy London of the 1960s.” The jacket shown on the stamp was designed by John Pearse using a Morris & Co. furniture fabric print called Golden Lily (1899).
