Good and very good used examples of the 3c dull red, red and venetian red Queen Victoria stamp from the 1868-1897 Large Queen Issue. The Venetian red shade is printed on Duckworth paper 9, while the other two are on Duckworth Paper 10. All three have small faults which reduce the grade, in the form of creases or small tears.
