Lot Sym. Lot Description  
1031 og ImageGREAT BRITAIN, 1880, 2sh Pale Brown (56; SG 121). Plate 1, lettered B-E, wing margin at left, original gum, lightly hinged with minute adhesion on reverse, fresh shade, some light staining at bottom right (mostly on reverse)

FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE 1880 2-SHILLING BROWN. A NOTORIOUSLY DIFFICULT ORIGINAL-GUM STAMP TO ACQUIRE.

In 1879 the Universal Postal Union recommended establishing an international color standard for stamps in the basic UPU rates. This required changing the 2-1/2p to Blue, but that conflicted with the then-current 2sh color. Brown was selected as the replacement color, and De La Rue printed a new batch of stamps which were released in Feb. 1880. The stamps were withdrawn on July 16, 1880, creating a period of about six months when these stamps were on sale. The short-lived sale period of the 2sh Brown explains its rarity, particularly in unused condition.

With 1984 R.P.S. certificate. Scott $27,500.00. SG £30,000 (Image)
