Hello,    found this tonight so thought here is a chance for a quiz. Lovely MS I think you will agree.  I hope this is interesting and a challenging question. Who was the inventor of the postage stamp?  Rowland Hill is the obvious answer as he is usually credited with originating the basic concept of the postal service and the postage stamp. But maybe someone else should get some credit?    

Here he is.   name please and in what year did he put forward the idea of a "stamp"

enjoy your stamps........  Michael    oh and please have a look at my eBay listings.. just search under username michaelatcddstamps.. some interesting lots now available  for viewing.  :-)
