The world's first postage stamp was issued by Great Britain in 1840. Featuring a bust of Queen Victoria, it has come to be known as the "Penny Black." It also marked the introduction of "uniform penny postage" in a mail system: the rate to carry a letter to ANY destination within the country was now the same, and not based on distance carried.
