ST HELENA 1922 SG113 Mint KGV 15s grey and purple on blue paper with plate number

Stock Code: P223004263

1922-37 15s grey and purple/blue, lower marginal with plate number "1" (R5/11), very fine o.g. An exceptional example of this key stamp. Very rare and desirable in this positional form, with no example available to Stanton and Thorpe for illustration in their 2012 study. It demonstrates the differences in the plate plug and jubilee line of the 15s (and £1) value in comparison with the 1d to 10s values from the same May 1922 printing. [Although 107 2/3 sheets of the 15s were supplied, it seems likely that the bulk of the printing was later destroyed. In the past 20 years we have only handled one other 15s plate number example, and that was from R1/11 (and hinged on the face of the margin).]
