Sunday Stamps 104 - black stamps

I've not managed to participate in Sunday Stamps for a while but will try to make more of an effort in 2013. I suspect my choice of stamps, well the first one of them anyway, for this week's theme of black is not particularly original. My only Penny Black stamp it is pretty battered,  but it's still special in its own way.

Penny Black stamp, c.1840, and a £1 stamp from the 1980's

For any recent new recruits to Sunday Stamps, I have to confess that it's vintage postcards that is my main passion, but stamps, being inextricably linked, do of course get a look in every once in a while.
