The 1880 Queen Victoria Longtypes Colour Catalogue


So you’re not really all that interested in the details of how the Queen Victoria Longtype set was developed and the subtleties of watermarks and perforation differences.

You simply want to know how much your copies are worth, or how much you should be paying for the copy you found on eBay.

Here’s just what you are looking for!

Now available for the first time all in one place is a full colour catalogue for the 1880 Queen Victoria Longtype set.

No more dashing between publications or guessing what the shade of your copy is, this catalogue gives values for…

Mint (UHM or HM)
Postally Used
A/F/H type cancellations
Parcels post cancellations
Fiscally used – Unpunched and Punched

along with colour images for each of the values and shades within the value of the set.

Also provided is catalogue values for QVLTs used for other purposes such as Counterpart, Denoting, Fine Paid, Passport Fee, Not Liable and Pacific Island overprints.

The perfect compliment to the Complete Guide of the 1880 QVLTS, or a comprehensive publication just by itself.

A picture is worth a thousand words, and with 143 colour images to assist the enthusiast, this publication leaves no stone unturned.

The book is printed on a colour laser printer on to 120gsm printers paper, acetate sheet front and back to prevent cover damage, as well as a card backing sheet for extra protection. It is bound with a solid plastic slip on grip which I considered much better than spiral binding for durability and ease of use.

A must for the serious Stamp Collector’s library – Order yours today!


“The Guide” gives details of printings, watermarks, flaws, perforations, postally used discussion and all the technical aspects of the set (which appeals to some collectors), whereas “The Catalogue” focuses on PRICES for the various printings of each stamp & market values realised for scarcer items – this is of value to collectors who wish to get a handle on how much their collection is worth or how much they should be paying for their purchases.
