* Notes about these prices:
  • They are currently in beta mode, meaning that they should not be relied upon yet as a source of truth and could change frequently. Please notify CPS if you come across values that do not make sense.
  • They are not based on catalogue values but on current dealer and auction listings. The reason for this is that catalogues tend to over-value stamps.
  • They are average prices and might not be fully accurate. The actual value of your stamp may be slightly above or below the listed value, depending on the overall condition of your stamp.

About Stamp

Owing to its smaller size, the ½-cent stamps in the 1868 issue proved to be more convenient than others of the series. Consequently, the postal authorities arranged to supersede the other larger stamps of 1868 types with corresponding denominations in the size of the ½-cent stamps. The designs were similar to the stamps in the 1868 issue. Registered Letter stamps of a distinctive type first issued on 15th November 1875 and followed by other issues of the same type were superseded by the issuance on 1st August, 1893, of an 8-cent stamp intended to combine the current letter rate of three cents and registration fee of five cents. The new stamp was of similar type to the small cents design of 1870 excepting that Her Majesty's head turned to the left instead of to the right. Portrait of Her Majesty Queen Victoria from a medallion. Similar to the 1-cent orange stamp of 1870, but with the profile reversed.
