re: 1937-39 George VI stamps with selvage

i would ALWAYS choose these over their unadorned counterparts. In the states, I don't believe there's a specific market for them as there once was for ZIP selvage and most guidelines. I always prefer selvage that helps to ID where the stamp came from on a sheet, plate, pane, press, or printing.

Silence in the face of adversity is the father of complicity and collusion, the first cousins of conspiracy..

re: 1937-39 George VI stamps with selvage

If I came across that lot somewhere, I'd no doubt keep it together, but I wouldn't pay a premium for them.
However if I were putting them on an album page I would trim some of those rough tear lines away. I think they could all be trimmed in the manner of how the 5p, "D/38" is in the photo, so that they would look neater.
That said, someone who is enthralled by the KG VI definitive series might just get the vapors finding them in a auction lot.
