Stock Code: P10108030

1924 2s6d Postage due colour/paper trials (4th series - 21st Jan 1924). A superb imperforate irregular block of three printed in purple on gummed, wove unwatermarked tinted paper mounted on brown card numbered "SD4" and annotated with the official colour description "D Canary 49/Purple". A series of 24 different colour trials were produced at Somerset House from a specially made Royal Mint plate of four impressions of the ½d die, this is from the fourth series of six in purple on different yellow tinted papers. In the place of the missing 4th stamp can be seen a manuscript annotation "To HM" (His Majesty) and now resides in the Royal Philatelic Collection. A spectacular and unique piece.
