It's All About the Cancellations Series:

Condition for this stamp.....Used/Hand Cancelled and considered to be Fine (F)

Please examine the photo of the stamp closely to determine its condition. The cancellation on this stamp is minimal and presents a fine representation of a cancellation from a post office in London.

This 1881 issue from Great Britain features Queen Victoria and is known as the "Penny Lilac 16 pearls " Issue. The Penny Lilac was issued from 1881 until 1901. It was the basic postage stamp used in the UK. As a result of a new law, it was the first stamp to include the inscription "Postage and inland revenue". The Penny Lilac was a surface-printed stamp. Because of the vast quantities printed, this stamp is not rare and its value is lower than that of rare stamps.

A little bit of info about Cancellation Marks:

Used stamps have cancellation marks on them. These were used in order to prevent the reuse of a stamp. The cancellation mark during Victorian times was the Maltese cross, which can be either black or red. The lighter the cancellation mark, the more valuable the Queen Victoria stamp. This stamp has a handwritten cancel which makes it unique.

The value of a "Queen Victoria" stamp is largely determined by its condition.

In Philately, the condition of a stamp is usually classified by the following:

Superb: Superb stamps are perfect in every dimension, meaning that the image is definitely centered with even margins in case of imperforate stamps or with the perforations. The color should not be faded and the perforations should not be damaged. If the stamp is used, the cancellation stamp on it should be clearly visible.

Very Fine: A very fine stamp is generally balanced, but may be slightly off the center on two of its sides. A very fine stamp is unfaded and has no creases, tears, thins, or other signs of damage. All the perforations should be full instead of short. If the stamp is used, the cancellation should be light, clean.

Fine: The design of a fine stamp is noticeably unbalanced and the perforations may cut into the design. The color is unfaded and the stamp has no signs of damage on it. The cancellations on fine stamps are heavier than those on very fine stamps, but they still do not detract from the appearance of the design.

Good/Average: Good stamps, also known as average stamps, have no tears, creases, thins, or very heavy cancellation marks. These stamps may not be perfectly centered.

Poor: Poor stamps, which may also be called damaged stamps, have some faults. These may include tears, stains, and holes. Their color might be fading or rusty. If they are used, they may also have heavy cancellation marks that cover the design.
