Collections of 1978 Captain Cook Bicentenary, 1981 Wedding of Prince Charles (sic) and 1983 Commonwealth Day issues on specialty White Ace album pages (with black mounts). Appears to be near (if not) complete with the stamps being in perfect condition. The Cook section consists of 201 stamps and 49 souvenir sheets, not surprisingly heavily tied to the countries that he travelled. Despite the "Prince Charles" title, it is actually Princess Diana that is featured in the second section with 162 stamps, 82 souvenir sheets and 5 booklets. The final chapter is the underappreciated holiday of Commonwealth Day, which was commemorated in 1983 with 216 stamps and 6 souvenir sheets. Be grateful that it wasn’t you who bought these as new issues as the initial cost would be immense. A total 578 stamps, 137 souvenir sheets and 5 booklets. Estimate =
