I don't know much about this stamp album. From research I've learned that Queen Elizabeth II became Queen on February 6, 1952, on the death of her father. Her Coronation was held more than a year later, on June 2, 1953. Among the many events marking the occasion was the issuance of a special Coronation set of postage stamps. The stamps were actually issued June 3, since post offices were closed on Coronation Day.

This stamp book is for Great Britain & Commonwealth Territories and it was designed for QE II 1953 stamps from all applicable countries. This hard bound book is 6"x9" and was published by J.& R. Darracott Ltd. London and has a complete index of countries with every country having a paragraph or more of information & history.

As far as condition, I don't know how to even grade something like this so I'm going to just ask you to look at the photos. Since I'm unaware of what this thing is worth I'm going to start the bidding low and see what happens. It seems like an interesting piece of history and would be great for a collector.
