Stock Code: P212012848

1913-19 6d black and reddish mauve, toned paper, head die IIIB, perf 14, block of 4, the lower left stamp (R6/1) showing substituted Head Die II, o.g. (lower pair, inclg variety, unmounted). The upper pair with slight gum wrinkling and odd shortish perfs, still an attractive and very rare multiple. The first mint example of the substituted die we have handled. [N.B. The Die II stamp is easily identified by the lack of an outline to the King's left ear, while the anchor shank remains unbroken. Unlike other Die II stamps, the substituted die was retouched around the cap to resemble Die IIIB.]
