FINE-VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE SET OF INDIA PLATE PROOF BLOCKS OF THE 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE WITH BETTER POSITION PIECES AND BOTH SHADES OF THE 24c VALUE.

The 24c value comes in two distinctly different vignette shades, and we have argued that the scarcer second shade differs so substantially from the issued color that it should be separately listed. Starting in 2012 the Scott Specialized Catalogue began listing the second shade in the trial color proof section as Green and Reddish Lilac (unpriced and counted here as a second block of 120P3).
