    If it is an original, it is from 1854. These were the first valid postage stamps available in India, also, one of the first multi-colored stamps. An error variation of this stamp called the "inverted four annas" with the bust flipped upside down where the crown is closest to the words "four annas". That error variation is one of the most sought after stamps by collectors. Even though it is not an error stamp, it is still quite valuable, I am not quite sure of exact value you. Take good care of it!

    It is print of the 4 annas stamp from 1854. Whether it is an original or a replica you have to verify, as this is one of the most commonly forged stamps in the British India portfolio.
