Great Britain 1841 2d blue, Plate 4, SG14.

A very fine and fresh mint block of six with original gum. Clear to large margins, lettered DD-EF. Insignificant rust spot at upper right, which does not detract from what is a magnificent multiple of the highest rarity.

White lines were added to the 1841 printings of the 2d blue to distinguish them from the original 1840 2d blue printings.

Accompanied with a 1961 British Philatelic Association (BPA) Certificate of Authenticity.

A magnificent rarity of early British philately.

The Stanley Gibbons Great Britain Queen Victoria Specialised Catalogue, last published in 2021, lists a value for a mint block of four at £30,000
