£1,250.00

Australia States TASMANIA VDL QV Chalon Stamp 2d (1855) *Perkins Bacon Proof* (SG.14var) GBLUE11
A BEAUTIFUL PERKINS BACON PROOF IMPRESSION on thick paper without watermark. A lovely example in carmine. See footnote in Stanley Gibbons Commonwealth Catalogue (pp30) after SG.18. Small expertisation handstamp on reverse. Some toning on reverse as usual but otherwise Extremely Fine for an item of this type & period. Please look at all the scans to help form your own opinion.
See note after SG 18 - these are often sold as the issued mint stamps, but are the Perkins Bacon plate proofs, themselves extremely rare, even as singles (stampboards)
