Lettered F-B, original gum, lightly hinged, excellent centering with wide margins, bright shade and sharp impression

EXTREMELY FINE. A CHOICE EXAMPLE OF THE SCARCE 2-SHILLING 6-PENCE ON BLUED PAPER.

This value was adopted to serve postal duty and to replace the 2sh6p Inland Revenue embossed stamp, hence the "Postage & Revenue" legend. No essays were created for this value, as it was hastily executed by adapting a 3sh essay. It shows the tightly spaced wording, and the "2/6" looks more like a fraction than a shilling value.

Ex Gross. With 1990 R.P.S. certificate. SG £6,750. Scott $9,250.00.
