THE UNIQUE EXAMPLE OF THE HONOUR'S CARRIER STAMP ON PINK PELURE PAPER.

This cover is accompanied by a 1990 P.F. certificate describing the stamp as a genuine example of the de-listed Scott 4LB10. The few known pelure paper stamps are printed from the first setting with wide spacing between stamps and the period after "Paid." Despite the certificate and other experts' acceptance of this unique pink pelure paper variation, Scott carries a footnote stating "believed not to have been issued by the post, but to have been created later and perhaps accidentally." We guarantee this stamp to be on pelure paper (with pink color) without time limit.
