GB 1881 SG172 Revenue - Homersham scheme trial cancel
1881 1d Lilac (Die 2). Very fine example affixed to piece (114 x 188mm, folded in half for display) from De La Rue records with trial embossed ''NEWCASTLE ON TYNE/29/1/91'' cancellation in orange ink, piece endorsed in manuscript '5. Newcastle' at upper left.
A rare example from the "Homersham" scheme which involved "applying adhesive stamps to documents to express the stamps duty with an overprint embossed cancelling stamp". Seven dies were cut, each with a different town name and dated 29.1.91, but De La Rue were ambivalent about the scheme when asked to comment on February 20th 1885.
