The Postal Museum has made all 837 of its GB Victorian registration stamp sheets available on its website, in high resolution, for the first time, allowing philatelists to access and examine these sheets online.
Dating from 1840 to 1900, the sheets include the proof sheet of Penny Blacks and Registration Sheets of Penny Reds but not yet Departmental Overprints.
The images can be accessed on The Postal Museum’s online catalogue by visiting http://bit.ly/reg-sheets.
Researchers can zoom into the sheets by right clicking on the image in the catalogue and opening in a new tab.
A spokesperson for the Museum said: ‘The Postal Museum is continually working to improve access to its collections and intends to extend the number of sheets available digitally in future.’
