The front with crease (and small tear) at top and addressee partly deleted (but still fully legible), nevertheless an attractive item, with an exceptional strike of the duplex. Ex R.C.B. Smith (no. 77930 - Spink 9/12/2009, lot 237, part). [The 23rd printing is traditionally classified as "bright orange-yellow" (SG 12), but in our experience there was considerable variation in shade].
