EXTREMELY FINE. A REMARKABLE USED EXAMPLE OF THE RAREST KING GEORGE V KEY PLATE SHADE, EVEN MORE SO WITH THE BREAK IN LINES BELOW LEFT SCROLL VARIETY.
The Bermuda Key Plate varieties in used condition with clear cancels are themselves very rare. To find one on this sought-after 2sh6p shade is extraordinary.
With 2017 B.P.A. certificate. Unpriced in SG as used (£6,000 as unused). SG often prices used varieties, with a 20-30% increase over the unused value.
VERY FINE. A HANDSOME EXAMPLE OF THE RARE BLANK SCROLL VARIETY. ONE OF THE SCARCEST KING GEORGE VI KEY PLATE FLAW VARIETIES.
Only 95 were printed from the March 1943 printings of the 2sh6p and £1 values. SG £4,000
VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE KING GEORGE VI ONE-POUND WITH DAMAGED VALUE TABLET VARIETY.
This so-called "white island flaw" variety is the rarest of all the King George VI One Pound Key Plates, as it only occurred on part of the 1951 printing. It is also one of the most desirable, as the plate flaw is one of the most easily discernible.
