|Description:||The 'Post Office Mauritius' stamp issue is undoubtedly the most famous issue ever produced. These stamps were engraved and printed with 'Post Office' instead of the correct 'Post Paid' inscription, by a local engraver and printer. The one penny and the two pence denominations were the first official adhesive stamps issued in the British colonies. Fourteen examples are known to exist, of which only two are unused.|
