cddstamps on stamps

my thoughts on stamps, stamp collecting, philately in general and maybe a few other topics !

Hello,  today the last stamp I will show from Jamaica. Everyone has a favourite animal and perhaps some like the  beautiful and majestic giraffe, so this stamp is my  choice. 

 This is from the  QE II 1954 issue.  Rather stunning I think.  There was also a 10c value of the same design  just a different colour.

For this 50c value do look carefully at the colour as there was a second printing in 1957 in the colour claret,  rather this shade which is, by the SG colour guide, reddish purple.

Enjoy your stamps and all they bring us.         Michael
