Australia-Victoria-A Queen Victoria 5 Penny Postage Stamp-1886-Illustrated

Illustrated below is a Queen Victoria 5 Penny (purple-brown) stamp from the definitive set printed between 1886 and 1896, for the state of Victoria in Australia. The set consisted of  fifteen values from a Halfpenny to 9 Pounds. The set is perhaps unusual in that 5,6,7,8 and 9 Pound values were printed for the set. Another colour variety of the 5 Penny stamp is known, a pale reddish-brown from 1893.
