1979P 1876/81 £5 orange VFU St Enoch Sq No 1 79 thimble SG T18 Cat £3200+ Top quality (1)

In 1882 the Post Office decided there was a need for a £5 postage stamp. The £5 Telegraph design was used, simply removing “Telegraphs” and replacing it with “Postage. The postage stamps were printed in a deeper shade of orange.  In 1902 the PO considered re-issuing the £5 with an EVII head but decided it was not necessary. Indeed a £5 postage stamp was not issued again until the tall £5 salmon & blue Machin in 1972.

 Excellent examples of both in the current sale, lots 1979 and 1924 respectively.
