Description

Owing to its smaller size, the ½-cent stamps in the 1868 issue proved to be more convenient than others of the series. Consequently, the postal authorities arranged to supersede the other larger stamps of 1868 types with corresponding denominations in the size of the ½-cent stamps. The designs were similar to the stamps in the 1868 issue. Postal officials considered the ½-cent stamp desirable because of its special purpose of paying the single periodical rate. Smaller in size than the other denominations of this series, a new ½-cent stamp was issued in July, 1882. Portrait of Queen Victoria from a medallion.
