I managed to snag a copy of the 5 pound Queen Victoria stamp a couple of years ago that was at a price that, although still hefty was too good to pass up. I figured I'd never find one at that price again. It's not a particularly rare stamp, there were almost a quarter of a million printed, and at any given time you can usually find 40 or 50 for sale on ebay, but it's such an iconic stamp that demand far exceeds supply. I also have its older sister, the 5 pound QV telegraph stamp, which is actually scarcer.

Nice stamp ,I was not fimilar with the revenue stamp with "telegraph" on it instead of "postage" . I looked on EBAY and couldn't find your telegraph stamp for sale ,but found a few POSTAGE stamps of the 5 pound QV stamp for sale in the $3,000 to $5,000 range.

Would like to pick up a "Telegraph " copy ,since you said so many are aviable,going to put that into my search tab.

Yes, some lovely stamps there. And a nice little income for post office employees selling the used stamps to dealers!

GeoffHa,
British stamps are not my field of interest but that is a very interesting article! It has provided me with some ideas about categorizing color. Thanks.

Yes, I'm highly unlikely to own any of these, but I enjoy reading about them!
