Mint Blocks of the Queen Victoria Keyplate Stamps of Lagos Not Already Shown in Previous Posts
Having completed my examination of all the Lagos Queen Victoria surface printed stamps, it seems appropriate to dedicate a post to show all of the mint blocks and multiples that were not illustrated in my posts that dealt with the individual values in the various sets.
Blocks prior to the 1887-1903 crown CA issue are rare, and my earliest ones are from the 1882-1886 Crown CA Issue.
