Description

Great Britain 1875 2½d rosy mauve Plate 5 imprimatur, SG138var.

A very fine and fresh unused, with original gum, imperforate imprimatur lettered OG.

Plates 4 & 5 were registered on Anchor Watermark paper though put to press on the Orb Watermark paper. Therefore the only way of obtaining this plate number on Anchor Watermarked paper is from the imprimatur sheet.

Very scarce, one of only 22 possible examples many of which are held within institutional collections.

Provenance: Ex. "Verus"
