VERY FINE. AN IMPORTANT HISTORICAL PHILATELIC DOCUMENT, OF WHICH PERHAPS THREE ARE KNOWN TO HAVE SURVIVED.
This facsimile of Great Britain's Mulready and Penny Black was printed in 1840 as part of the "Resolutions" of the 26th Congress, in which Daniel Webster introduced a bill to reform postage rates.
VERY FINE. ONE OF THE FINEST KNOWN EXAMPLES OF THE 1862 6-PENCE WATERMARK THREE ROSES AND THISTLE ERROR.
This error, in which the rose emblem replaced the shamrock in the watermark, is found only on position T-F. A tiny number are known. The others we have seen are either poorly centered and/or have faults. The example offered here is one of the finest (if not the finest) copies in existence.

VERY FINE. AN EXTRAORDINARILY RARE AND HIGHLY DESIRABLE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1935 2-1/2-PENCE PRUSSIAN BLUE ERROR OF COLOR.
It was thought for many years that this was technically a color trial that was accidentally released into circulation. That theory has since been proven wrong, as the stamps were printed in a slightly larger size, indicating that this is a true error of color. Four sheets of this error were released between June 25 and July 4, 1935, three of which are known to have originated at the Upper Edmonton Post Office, totaling 480 stamps. The original discoverer, A.J. Stavridi, used many of them on mail as souvenirs to friends and colleagues. This is likely one of those Stavridi mailed, as it has the same postmark found on the majority of used examples. It is believed that less than half of those issued are still in existence and only about 40 used examples have been recorded, some of which are faulty.
