Schneider Trophy Imperforated Mint Sheet

We mark the 100th anniversary of the British pioneer pilot, Howard Pixton, winner of the Schneider Trophy in Monaco, with a collection of celebratory sheetlets and special edition folder that details Pixton's life as a man and aviator.

His 1914 gain, in the Sopwith Tabloid, was Britain's very first international success with a British Plane, providing Pixton the standing of being the male that placed Britain in the lead in aviation for the first time.

One hundred years on, Howard's daughter, Stella Pixton, uses family documents to tell her father's tale with a one-of-a-kind and personalised account looking back at his life and extraordinary triumph in 1914, with interesting timeless monochrome photos of the race.

As well as the traditional perforated sheetlet, there is an imperforated sheetlet restricted to 1,500 numbered items, a rarity and essential collectable for any stamp collector.

Stella has also written a biographical novel 'Howard Pixton -Test Pilot and Pioneer Aviator: The Biography of the first British Schneider Trophy Winner', a really remarkable account that captures the setting, thrills and threat of the lead-in days of aviation.
