Issued in Britain in 1840, the Penny Black was the world's first postage stamp, cementing its status as a true icon of international philatelics. Having secured a small amount of these stamps both unaccompanied and set on original envelope covers, Downies is delighted to offer collectors the opportunity to secure the 1840 Penny Black in both formats and save $60 off the combined individual prices!

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.

Desirable in any condition, we have just tiny numbers of stamp pairs available in Fine Used condition! Immediate action is a must to take advantage of this landmark opportunity.
