The Chalon Head stamps are considered one of the most beautiful stamp designs from the Victorian era. The design is based on the 1838 painting of the young Queen Victoria by Alfred Chalon.
Undenominated revenue stamps of Grenada featuring the Chalon Head design were used from 1875 and surcharged with a value and a "POSTAGE" overprint making them valid for regular postage. These were used until 1891.
