We also know that her reign ended upon her death in January of 1901. Of course the late dating is superseded By the existence of the McKinley tariff which had effect on stampings in 1891. So it absolutely has to be between late 1837 to early 1891 but by the look of it my guess would be somewhere in the 1840s to 1850s. I don't have a definitive answer on when the regal stampings ceased but I'm sure someone will chime in.
    I'm impressed that you know Queen Victoria's dates Paul, especially as you lot kicked my lot out in what the War of Independence. I think you were all very naughty.

    Still we got our revenge, you have Duchess Miserable Meghan now

    Actually Paul, for a bonus point. Who was Queen Victoria married to and what was her last name (surname)?

    I don't remember his first name. I think it was Edward but it was Sax Coburg and Gotha

    I know that was a big deal during world war I. One thing I read about it was a big stink came when a German bomber got shot down and it was a gotha bomber. That's when they changed the name to Windsor.

    As far as Mehgan goes, The media made it out like she was this big star. I had never even heard of her until she was engaged to Harry.

    Yes, Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, she was married to Albert, they named the Albert Hall in London after him.

    The Gotha G.IV, a heavy aircraft capable of crossing the English Channel, began bombing London directly in 1917 and became a household name.

    There was a lot of bad feelings for the German Royalty so Edward VII changed the Royal Families name in 1917 to that of his favourite castle, Windsor.

    Anyway sorry for hijacking this thread, back to the razors.
