Scanned below is my favorite postal stationary item from Great Britain that resides in my collection. Stagecoach, horses, train, the Queen, and postal men in uniforms. It is not in perfect condition at all, but to my eye, I think it is beautiful!

Gary, I especially like the specificity of the arrival speed of the train--48 mph! Not 45 or 50, but 48. I can almost picture a rail speed inspector there with a tape measure and stopwatch. Happy

Steve - You bring up a good point on calculating the exact speed of the train.

Roy - Sadly, I do not have the insert. I did not know there even was an insert. Thanks for posting your scan of the one you sold. Very nice!
