GREAT BRITAIN QUEEN VICTORIA
Great Britain Used Abroad

Key: available; sold; temporarily unavailable; on ebay

It should be noted that these items are separately listed (under the 'Z' references below) in the SG Commonwealth & British Empire Stamps 1840-1852 Catalogue, 2003, formerly Part I. However, the prices quoted are many years out of date. For example, the 4d Vermilion Plate 15 (SG152) used in Mayaguez (Porto Rico) is listed in the current SG Concise (2003) at 325 for the basic stamp without 'Used Abroad' cancellation. The same stamp with 'F85' cancellation is listed in the current Commonwealth catalogue at 150. This is clearly a nonsense, as the usage abroad is of considerably greater scarcity. I have tried to reflect the currently burgeoning market in these items in my prices, though estimates of true relative value can only be approximate.

1856 1d Red-brown A VFU single from this RARE plate, centred low, with FULL PERFS, on piece, cancelled with a very fine COMPLETE strike of the CRIMEA 'O*O' numeral. Showing the distinctive TALL SLENDER 'L' of Plate 22. In attempting to assess the likelihood of examples of Plate 22 used in the Crimea surviving, I conclude ((and Mike Batty, 'Penny Red Stars Used Abroad - a Plating Record', agrees) that it is at least a possibility that this example is UNIQUE...an extraordinarily RARE COMBINATION. Cat.600++. 795.00
