Great Britain 1881 1d Lilac (Die 1, Plates 1-8)., SG170var.

Very fine unused original gum set of eight top marginal imperforate imprimaturs.

The 1d lilac was the result of a major change in policy. It came from a desire to unify the functions of Postage and Revenue stamps. The 1881 1d lilac was the First Unified Stamp. The first imprimatur in the set was registered on 23 May 1881.

The GB Queen Victoria Specialised Catalogue, last published in 2011, quotes the price for a single imprimatur at £420.

A wonderful and scarce set to assemble of such fine quality.
