A Penny Post Stamp From Cantharidia
My micronation of Cantharidia, as I have related in an earlier post,
is modelled in part on British postage stamps. The 'Penny Black' is the
name given to the world's first postage stamp, issued by the United
Kingdom back in the mid nineteenth century.
This stamp has been the subject of cinderella stamps created by other
artists. See this article for an interesting treatment of the theme:
