fine engraving .........

Hello, back to fine engraving tonight. I found this while looking through some more old material today.

Lovely stamp - well in its day. Pity my copy has short corner perfs.
This was issued in September 1895 to commemorate the introduction the "penny post" in South Africa.
Thought you might enjoy seeing this. Hope the scan is ok for you to appreciate the artwork.

Enjoy your stamps ........... Michael
