The Postage Stamp
The postage stamp has a long history… The monarch is always pictured with the price of the stamp. The United Kingdom issued the world’s first adhesive postage stamp on 6 May 1840. The Penny Black; the foundations for British stamps, a design showing Queen Victoria, without the country name. From then on, British stamps were issued with the reigning sovereign – often in profile or semi-profile and in alternative directions.
