Links to sites dealing with 1935 Silver Jubilee
The below sites specialize in their respective countries. Within each site is an excellent section dealing with the 1935 Silver Jubilee.
Silver Jubilee Site
Tony Ainscough has developed a site exclusively dedicated to the 1935 Silver Jubilee issues.
Although the site will concentrate on postal history and rates, a lot of other useful and interesting information will be made available, including a research section. Silver Jubilee postal history items can be purchased through the site. www.silverjubileestamps.com
Mike Andrews of Norfolk Island has a nice site dealing with the pre-decimal stamps of Australia. There is an excellent section outlining the printing, plating etc. of the Silver Jubilee issue. The Silver Jubilee information is found in the Early Rotary section. http://predecimal.nf
British Solomon Islands
Charles Miller of San Jose, California provided an excellent description of the British Solomon Islands Silver Jubilee stamps and its variations. Unfortunately Charlie died in early 2007. Roland Klinger has decided to host the site. I am grateful to him for this gesture. Follow the section to George V and then to The Silver Jubilee Issue.
New Zealand Jubilee Flight
New Zealand Dependencies
Paul den Ouden in British Columbia, Canada collects stamps of the New Zealand Dependencies. Check out his site and the write ups on the Cook Islands (Page 7), Niue (page 6) and Samoa (page 4). Roland Klinger has also graciously agreed to host Paul's site on his web site. http://www.ro-klinger.de/NZD/index.html
