Great Britain 1840 1d black, plate 1a lettered 'AF', SG2.

A fine used example with four good margins, crisp and neatly cancelled by a red Maltese Cross.

Plate 1 of the penny black was put to press on 11 April 1840 and registered on 15 April 1840. As the plate had not been hardened in a rush to meet the target issue date it soon showed signs of wear.

Stanley Gibbons catalogue value: £450.
