Great Britain 1847 1s Embossed essay, SG54var.
A very fine and fresh essay of the head without pendant curl and with frames, printed in pale green on previously gummed Dickinson "silk" thread paper with close to large four margins tied to a small piece, by a London City "14" trial cancellation.
A lovely example of this magnificent rarity.
