The 1887 Jubilee 2d Value
The Twopence Value of the 1887 Jubilee Series
1887 saw the introduction of the attractive and popular Jubilee series. These pages cover just the 2d value:
- The Shades, there are many more shades than SG list.
- Colour Trials and Specimens
- Marginal rule settings
- There were numerous plate varieties of which many are shown here.
- The last two pages show the two pieces that persuaded Stanley Gibbons to list the damaged tablet variety on row 3 stamp 12 in their Queen Victoria Specialised Catalogue. This variety had previously been listed for the equivalent King Edward VII 2d which had used the same plate.
