Great Britain 1840 2d Blue (MK) Plate 1 on Post Office Form from William Wordsworth SG5

Great Britain 1840 2d Blue plate 1, lettered MK, with large margins placed diagonally (perhaps suggesting a kiss) and tied by a superb red Maltese Cross in an orange vermilion shade on printed invoice headed Postage Stamps in the hand and signed by William Wordsworth.

The letter was posted in Amble on Christmas Eve 1840 to Mrs. Hannah Backhouse Postmistress of Kendal. Features a blue Ambleside circular date stamp on reverse.

William Wordsworth (1770-1850) Poet Laureate (from 1843) was distributor of stamps for the County of Westmorland until 1842.

A stunning and unique piece of philatelic history.
