Newfoundland-1865-70-A Queen Victoria 12 Cent (red-brown) Postage Stamp-Illustrated

Shown below is an example of the 12 Cent stamp issued for Newfoundland between 1865 and 1870. The stamp was part of a set with values from 2 Cents to 24 Cents. The issue was printed on a thin yellowish paper, without watermark. The original issue had values of a 2 Cent (yellowish-green), a 5 Cent (brown), 10 Cent (black) 12 Cent (red-brown), 13 Cent (orange-yellow) and 24 Cent (blue).

Four of the values in the set were re-issued in 1870 again with no watermark but on a thicker white paper. The re-issued values were the 2 Cent, 10 Cent, 12 Cent and 24 Cent stamps.  Two of the  re-issued values had colour changes. The 2 Cent changed from yellowish-green to bluish-green and the 12 Cent value from red-brown to chestnut.
