GB QV *ABNORMAL* PENNY RED Spec C7 1d Plate 25 (QK) GOTHIC K Cat £1,250- RRED3
EXTREMELY SCARCE new Die 2 Alphabet III issue on remaining SMALL CROWN Watermark paper. Note Alphabet II nicely confirmed by CHARACTERISTIC "Gothic K". Note cat value stated does not take account of this variety which should command a premium. PLATING CONFIRMED by extreme position of the "Gothic K". Some tone spots in residual gum on reverse. Otherwise sound with no hidden faults. WELL ABOVE AVERAGE perforations & centring for this difficult early 1856 issue. Condition as seen in scans. Overall Good/Very Good for an item of this type & period. Please look at all the scans to help form your own opinion. NEWLY DISCOVERED by Samwells in old-time collection. First time on the specialised Line-Engraved market. Priced according to condition & sold with all faults considered (WAF).
