The 1840 1d Penny Black is a masterpiece that has captured the imagination of collectors worldwide.

My clients have often told me building their fractional collection has given them huge pride from owning something so rare, so valuable and imbued with history.

The pride and pleasure of owning such historical artefacts is just one half of the benefit…

You also have the peace of mind which comes from owning a portable tangible asset.

It provides the perfect family heirloom in such uncertain economic times.

You can relax with the knowledge your historical asset has proved a long term stable investment since it first came into being in 1840.

A very fine and fresh mint four margin example with original gum, lettered ‘SI’ clearly showing a shifted transfer variety at top characteristic of the “S” row on plate 2.

Plate 2 was first registered on 22 April 1840 and was therefore amongst the first penny blacks issued on 6th May 1840. Plate 2 mint examples are very rare.

A rare mint example with original gum of the world’s first postage stamp and the most important stamp in the world you could possibly own.
