Illustrated below are two of the postage stamps issued for Heligoland in 1875. Heligoland is an island off the coast of Germany at one time British but ceded to Germany in 1890. Very few stamps were issued for Heligoland and for a brief time stamps were issued with the value in British and German currency. Shown below are the Halfpenny (2 Pfennigs) and the 2 and a Half Farthings (3 Pfennigs). Both are more highly valued in a lightly postally used condition.
