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. Portrait of Her Majesty Queen Victoria from a medallion.

Creators

Based on an engraving by Charles Henry Jeens. Portrait engraved by Alfred Jones. Lettering and frame engraved by Henry Earle Sr..
