When it comes to postage stamps one of the finest issues is the Penny Red. It has a very nice design and is, in my honest opinion, one of the most elegant stamps issued.

I am lucky enough to have 2 currently in my collection, one on cover

Penny Red - Plate 117 posted Edinburgh February 14, 1870
Close up of the Plate Number
Penny Red - Plate 99
Large Crown Watermark

Although not in the greatest shape, for tiny pieces of paper over almost 150 years old they aren’t doing to badly.
