Jamaica-1919-1921-George the 5th-The 1 Shilling Postage Stamp-Illustrated

Shown below is the 1919 1 Shilling (orange-yellow and red-orange) postage stamp. Issued during the reign of George the 5th. The stamps was part of a set of twelve values from a Halfpenny to 10 Shillings. The set had designs showing scenes of the island, historical scenes and island architecture. the 1 Shilling shows a memorial statue of Queen Victoria. This example is interesting for the cds showing a lacale and year date, it also has a print flaw with one of the borders misprinted.
