1840 2d Blues

The 2d Blue is The World`s 2nd Postage Stamp, issued 2 days later than the Penny Black on 8th May 1840. The first issues of this value (intended for double rate letters), were printed from plates 1 and 2. Copies of the stamp are now significantly rarer and more expensive than the Penny Black. The Penny Black allowed a letter weighing up to half an ounce to be sent anywhere within Britain, the Two Penny Blue's weight limit was a full ounce.
