GB 1840 SGDP20c Essay

Stock Code: P13413604

1840 1d Rainbow Trial (State 2). Very fine top marginal example printed by Perkins Bacon in black, with a central punch hole and clear evidence of abrading across Queens portrait. The abraiding experiment was a short lived attempt to find an alternative to ink based postmarks for defacing the stamps, so they could not be fraudulently reused. Very rare. Spec. DP20c
