FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 4-CENT DR. JOHN BULL ISSUE IN ULTRAMARINE. ONLY SEVEN ARE RECORDED IN THE ALDRICH BOOK.
Of the seven examples recorded in Aldrich, only three are sound. Ex Joyce, Tolman and "Scarsdale". With 2012 P.F. certificate
VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THE J. S. BURDSAL & CO. ON ORANGE SILK PAPER IS ONE OF THE GREAT RARITIES OF MEDICINE STAMP COLLECTING. ONLY FIVE ARE RECORDED IN THE CENSUS, AND THIS IS THE FIRST WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS.
The Aldrich book reports only five examples of this issue. However, the number could be smaller, because some examples of the Yellow silk paper variety, Scott RS45Ab, may be included in Aldrich's count. The latter was only recently listed as a separate Scott number (post-2012).
Ex Dill and Joyce.
