This issue celebrates one of the most enduring stories of all time in British legend - that of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. The set comprises five 1st class and five £1.70 values in two se-tenant strips of five, depicting significant events from Arthur's life from his birth to his departure for Avalon and two of his knights, Lancelot and Galahad, and his nemesis, Mordred.
The Gold 500 cover illustrates the theme with a striking image of the armour-clad King retrieving Excalibur from the Lady of the Lake, framed with a glittering 22ct gold-blocked design suitably enhanced by a commemorative from the 1985 Arthurian Legends issue; an Excalibur Close, Exeter handstamp and a regal lion cachet. Numbered limited edition of 500.
