Own the reissued Penny Black alongside an original Penny Red

Earlier this year we witnessed the biggest event in philately for years.  On 6th May, the world's first postage stamp, the Penny Black, celebrated its 175th anniversary. 

Today you can own this reissued stamp, postmarked on its first day of issue – 6th May 2015 and exactly 175 years to the day since the original was issued.  What’s more, each stamp has been protectively encapsulated to preserve its future status as a Philatelic Legend.

Alongside this new issue is a bonafide Philatelic Legend - an original Victorian Penny Red Postage Stamp– the stamp that replaced the first Penny Black and was arguably the backbone of Victorian postage.  

Together they can be yours today for just £24.99 plus postage and packing.
