Good question and welcome.

Your stamp is a Large Queen.

The vignette of Queen Victoria is common to both stamps, but the diameter of the vignette oval for Large Queens is larger. The stamp size is thus larger. Additionally, the design and ornamentation surrounding the Large Queen vignette is more elaborate. Each value has a unique design.

The half-cent Large Queen is an exception, it is actually the same size as the Small Queen issue.

The album page on which your stamps are mounted shows both series.

Thanks Archerg. Would this be the same large queen that has a very high value?

The two-cent Large Queen you show is a Scott 24, probably the thin paper 24b.

There is an extremely rare two-cent Large Queen, the #32 on laid paper, but I'm 99.999% sure yours is the #24.

It is a popular series.

It's also a very nice copy of the 2c Large Queen.

If Victoria's Neck touches the oval in bottom right it is a small queen.
If it doesn't it is LARGE QUEEN. except for the 1/2 cent
