 Own the Third and Fourth Postage Stamps Ever Issued

This is your chance to own Great Britain #3 & #4 in one easy order.  These stamps are over 180 years old and were the world's third and fourth postage stamps ever issued.  

Great Britain #3 was printed in a different color than the original One Penny Great Britain stamp to make it easier for postal workers to see if the stamp had been canceled (making it less likely the stamp would be cleaned and reused).  This one-penny stamp paid the first class mail rate for 13 years.

Great Britain #4 had the same color as the original two pence stamp but included a white line above the words "TWO PENCE" to distinguish it from the first printing.  This stamp is far more scarce than #3 as it paid the doublt rate and only 90 million were printed (less than 5% of the number of one-penny stamps printed).

Each of these stamps has letters in the bottom corners indicating which position the stamp was printed in on the sheet of 240.  The letter on the left indicates the row the stamp was in, while the letter on the right indicates the column.  For example, "E" on the left and "B" ont he right would indicate the stamp was printed in the fifth row, second column from left.

When you order now, you'll receive stamps printed in the same position, so you'll receive a Great Britain #3 and #4 with the same letters – a fun and unusual opportunity to add matching stamps to your collection.  Considering the Scott value for such a set would normally be over $122, it's a great value you don't want to miss.  Get yours today.
