1877 £5 orange Queen Victoria TELEGRAPHS, Shamrocks watermark, used – no thins, tears or bends.
The £5 Telegraph stamp is estimated to be up to thirty times rarer than the Postage equivalent, though the catalogue values don’t reflect this. The Telegraphs have recently been to be listed in the regular SG catalogues, so this imbalance may change as demand picks up.
