GB 1847 SG54var Essay

Stock Code: G1452614

1847 Embossed Issue Essay. Very fine right hand marginal proof of the head taken before the pendant curl was added, without frame or value inscription. Printed in pale green on gummed paper with blue and red horizontal lines to simulate Dickinson silk thread paper. Small thin on reverse and two horizontal creases, one of which just cracks the surface of the paper. Nevertheless of fine appearance and the greatest rarity, believed to be one of only 3 or 4 examples in private hands, this particular example is illustrated on page 177 of the Specialised Vol.1 catalogue. Spec. EP1a. Ex. Maximus. Cat. £80,000.
