Mail trivia IV

Did you know that...

the "Penny Black" was the world's first adhesive postage stamp used in a public postal system?

It was issued by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on May 1st, 1840 and for use from May, 6th that year.

Happy Birthday to stamps on their 170th anniversary!
