About England Stamp

England's Penny Black stamp, released to Ireland and the city of Bath on May 1st, 1840, heralded a revolution in the postal services. The Penny Black was the first universal penny stamp ever to be employed for citizen use. Its design, which featured a profile of England's Queen Victoria, proved elegant and stylish. However, postal officials found it very difficult to cancel these stamps with the red ink that they had been given for the purpose.Thus, the following year, the British government quickly issued another stamp, called the Penny Red. This stamp was far easier to cancel. Almost immediately upon the release of these two stamps, collectors across Great Britain began hoarding the universal penny stamps. This was a smart investment. Today, original Penny Blacks in mint condition sell at auction for over $3,000.Conversely, original Penny Reds may only go for about three dollars a stamp. Original Penny Blacks were created using a sophisticated system of 11 separate lithographic plates. During production, the first plate was damaged as a result of overuse. One of the first presses of the Penny Black stamp can be viewed in London's British Library.A postal bureaucrat named Mulready tried to implement a system of ''official stamps'' around the time of the universal stamp's advent. These official mailers were marked with the letters ''V'' and ''R'' in the upper corners. Official stamp issuances proved confusing to citizens. Thus, a few years later, the British postal system did away with them entirely in favor of the universal penny stamp system.
