    Great Britain Queen Elizabeth II 1998 26p Comedians "Eric Morecambe", SG2042ea.

    A superb unmounted original gum example with vermilion printed double. Due to insufficient tension between the printing plate and rubber cylinder or the rubber cylinder and paper, it's possible for an image to be transferred two or more times. So called kiss prints occasionally occur at the beginning or end of a print run.
