Post subject:  Coronation cover for KEVIII

Somewhere a few months ago, I read of a cover designed for the Coronation of KEVIII, stamped with the four stamps, and cancelled on 12th May, 1937. There was a photo of the cover, and it looked pretty good! I think it might have been in an old copy of the Newsletter...

I think it was shown as an example of how a forgers can loose sight of the wood when the focus is too closely on a tree - and the tone of the text was humorous.

If anybody knows what I'm talking about and can either email a copy of the article, or give me a reference, I'd be delighted. If the owner of the cover reads this... please be very kind and post a decent scan!

Cheers, Robin R.
