Ten 1d Pale Lilac

Ten 1d Pale Lilac

Ten 1d Pale Lilac (14 dots), selection sent may vary to those shown. 

The Penny Lilac was the most issued stamp of the Victorian era, in use from July 12th 1881 until 1901. The new colour was selected to deter against fraudulent re-use, with a fugitive lilac ink added that would run if anyone attempted to wash off the cancellation. The stamp also broke the tradition of using corner letters, and was instead issued in two forms. Firstly a Die I with 14 dots in each corner with 495,984,000 issued from July 12th 1881, and a die II with 16 dots in each corner with 33,600,000,000 issued from December 13th 1881.
