Marconi Centenary FDC

In 1996, the centennial year of radio communications, Solomon Islands in the SW Pacific issued a set of four stamps commemorating Marconi's achievements:
  • $1.05 - Marconi demonstration on Salisbury Plain c.1896
  • $1.20 - Marconi maritime installation c.1900
  • $1.35 - First aeronautical radio - Croydon Airport c.1920
  • $1.45 - Marconi in Japan during his 1933-34 world tour

I have some spares of this set of four stamps on a First Day Cover (FDC) please contact me for details. Sorry, I no longer have any mint stamps.
