FINE. A RARE MULTIPLE OF THE 4-PENCE IN SAGE GREEN FROM PLATE 15, ESPECIALLY SO IN SUCH PRISTINE CONDITION.
Plate 15 was originally used to print the 4p Vermilion beginning in 1875 before the change of color the following year. Due to the shorter span of life in printing the Sage Green, Plate 15 is slightly rarer than Plate 16.
Ex Baillie. With 1989 B.P.A. certificate. SG as hinged block and two singles £10,800
