Smithsonian's National Postal Museum

In 1848 Mauritius, then a British colony, issued stamps showing Queen Victoria at age 18. The soft copper plates wore down quickly, resulting in the changes visible in this group of early to late impressions. Some stamps contain an engraver’s error: “PENOE” instead of “PENCE.”
