GB 1923 SGD18var Postage Due
1923 2s6d Postage due colour trials (3rd series - 6th Dec 1923). A superb imperforate irregular block of three printed on gummed, wove unwatermarked paper mounted on brown card annotated with the official colour description "Purple" (the chosen colour). A series of 24 different colour trials were produced at Somerset House from a specially made Royal Mint plate of four impressions of the 1/2d die, this is from the third series of six in diferent shades of red, purple and mauve. 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, presently unlisted but to be included in the next Specialised Vol.2 Catalogue.
