Britain's 1840 Penny Black was the world's first postage stamp - and remains a true icon of international philatelics. This critical issue is also the world's most famous stamp, boasting a profile that extends far beyond the realm of philatelics. An extraordinary opportunity to transport yourself back to Britain under the reign of Queen Victoria, Downies is delighted to present this critical stamp set upon an original envelope cover!

Signalling a revolution in communication, the Penny Black was introduced to thwart rampant postal fraud in Britain. The cornerstone of every serious stamp collection, this iconic 177-year-old stamp features a portrait of the young Queen Victoria - crowned just three years before the Penny Black was issued.

Coveted by collectors in any condition, we have a tiny number of this world-famous stamp on envelope covers. Immediate action is a must to take advantage of this landmark opportunity.
