    Um, you really need to place a warning on your title. Something on the lines of...

    "Warning. Viewing these images may cause sever water damage to your keyboard due to excess salivating."

    I am in absolute AWE!!!

    Rega,

    The first 4 blue stamps on the blue page, are a Scott#2. If you want to get rid of one, PLEASE let me know.

    Thanks,
    Kris

    I will plate some up then boys and let you know.
    Just to repeat though, there is no such thing as a penny blue.
    You mean the two pence blue.
    Are you after any particular plates?

    two pence blues come in SG1a-i
    and SG2a-i
    I have no idea which of these would be a Scott2, but the idea that all two pence blues are the same is erroneous.

    yup! a "twopenny-blue" I believe it's called right?

    No, two "pence" blue.
    Penny is singular.
    Pence is plural.

    The Scott#2 two pence blue, doesnt have a "white line under the word postage".

    I have a SG 2006 Catalog for GB stamps. If you look at the three stamps that I have posted:
    The penny black is a SG#2
    The penny red is a SG#8
    The 2pence blue is a SG#14

    The one that I am missing and in need of is SG#5 (or Scott#2)

    I do understand that there are many different 2 pence blues.
