Main Index


In June 1925 two stamps were issued for the Silver Jubilee of King Victor Emmanuel III. The 60 centesimi was in carmine and the 1 lira in blue. Due to a change in postal rates the 1.25 lire, also in blue, was issued in January 1926.

All three stamps come in two perforations: Perf 11 and Perf 13½. The stamps were usually without watermark, although those near the edge of the sheet could sometimes have letters from the marginal inscription, or crowns, also from the margin.

In mint condition the 1.25 lire perf 11 is very scarce, and it is also difficult to find in used condition.
