Long Pound Surface Printed Stamps

The Long One Pound Stamp is a stunning feature to Great Britain’s postal history. Issued in 1884, these striking stamps have features which are distinguishing to modern day postage; as they are surface printed high value stamps. To find out more information about surface printing or Queen Victoria High Values please check out these separate videos on our YouTube Channel.

This YouTube Video has lots interesting information about the Long One Pound Stamps but also can be a useful tool for distinguishing varieties of these prestige stamps. For example, it talks about the Long One Pound brown-lilac which was issued with a Crowns watermark; and how a misprint meant that it is possible to get this stamp with an orb watermark which was actually intended for fiscal stamps. Yet, this variety can mean the stamps value is tens of thousands of pounds more than the original stamp with a crown watermark. The YouTube Video also has fantastic examples of Mint Long One Pound Stamps for you to admire.
