Great Britain-1887-A Queen Victoria "Jubilee" Postage Stamp Set-Illustrated

Shown below is the Jubilee set of Queen Victoria. The set consisted of 12 values from a Halfpenny to 1 Shilling, with some varieties in shade and subsequent reprintings in different colours. (see Queen Victoria issues, this blog). The Halfpenny and 1 Shilling values shown here were the original colours for the set. In 1900 the Halfpenny was changed from vermilion to blue-green and the 1 Shilling from dull-green to green and carmine.
