VERY FINE. A LOVELY EXAMPLE OF THE FAMOUS H.M.S. "GLASGOW" ERROR OF VIGNETTE. PERHAPS 25 ARE KNOWN.

This issue was produced to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Battle of the Falkland Islands. It is believed this error occurred when a sheet with the center showing the "Glasgow", which was used for the 2-1/2p value, was accidentally included among the supply of the 6p value, where it received the wrong frame. Stanley Gibbons notes about 25 have been recorded. The reason the majority have not been found is that most were included in new issue shipments, and the error was not discovered until the vast majority were dispersed. Collectors and dealers received them without knowing their special significance. Many collectors hinged them in their albums, making for an unusually large percentage of hinged examples in the marketplace.

One of the key error rarities of the Queen Elizabeth II era. Scott $30,000.00. SG £40,000
