It is true that the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun is due to his compatriot Howard Carter, but London “settled” in 1972 on a postage stamp. They are now twelve
On April 26, 1972, the United Kingdom “settled” only one postage stamp, worth 3 pence, to commemorate the half-century since the discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb, made by archaeologist Howard Carter. On 24 November last, for the secular turning point, the tribute was extended to no fewer than twelve specimens.
The eight denticles in the leaves (of thirty or sixty units, which contain equal numbers of same-faced leaves) show some of the most well-preserved: the King’s head emerging from the lotus flower and the inlaid fan (2nd class, now £0.68); the deceased’s golden mask and falcon necklace (before 0.95); part of the sofa with the lion and the golden throne (1.85); The model boat in calcite and the statue in which the protagonist plays the role of guardian (2.55). The finds, coming from the Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo, were photographed by the Romanian Araldo De Luca.
The remaining four bills (two by and the remainder by 1.85) are prepared in a sheet; Document the stage of discovery with the footage taken by Harry Burton.
Do not miss the prestige brochure (from 21.55), this is available from December 12 (continued).
