EXTREMELY FINE. A SPECTACULAR EXAMPLE OF THIS RARE 5-SHILLING ROSE ON BLUED PAPER, ESPECIALLY SO IN THIS PRISTINE CONDITION.
Despite its high catalogue value, examples of this stamp are available on the market. However, what should not be overlooked is the condition of almost all examples offered for sale. Most are slightly off center, regummed, repaired and/or have surface rubbing. Examples with none of those problems are rare, and the stamp offered here is one of the finest extant.
