2b Bisects

If you did not already know Bisects are a rare anomaly in postal history, as they are stamps which have been cut up as in order to spread the cost of the stamp over more than one piece of postage. A fantastic and rare version of this irregularity is the 1840 2d Bisect. This YouTube Video is very informative and highly interesting as it discusses why this might have happened as gives beautiful examples of the only three of the few known in existence.

One of these illustrations photographed in this video has been described as one of the rarest stamps in Great Britain. So, if you are interested in learning about these fascinating stamps? Or perhaps you have heard of the famous pair of 2d stamps we are referring to and would love to see them for yourself? Then I suggest you watch this YouTube Video as it will not disappoint!
