GB 1840 SGDP17a Proof

GB 1840 SGDP17a Proof
1840 (March) 1d Black Master Die Proof. Superb example printed in black on India paper (62 x 68mm) mounted on card with the four corner squares blank. Irrefutably the most important postage stamp proof in existence, this being the master for the world's first postage stamp and one of only two complete examples in private hands (The Earl of Crawford example had faults, while the example offered here is in exceptional condition), three other examples are in institutional collections - two are in the Royal Philatelic Collection and one in the National Postal Museum. Ex. Major Allen, "Tes" and Pichai Buranasombati. Spec. DP17a.
