"A bit of paper just large enough to bear the stamp, and covered at the back with a glutinous wash”. These were the words of Rowland Hill in his proposal that became reality in the Penny Black. The world’s first postage stamp was issued in 1840 and allowed for prepaid postage of a letter up to half an ounce in weight anywhere within the United Kingdom.
This 175th Anniversary of the Penny Post Stamp Cover features two each of the 2015 editions of both the Penny Black and the Twopenny Blue. Cancelled with a Bath, Somerset postmark dated 6th May 2015.
