EXTREMELY FINE. A GEM EXAMPLE OF THE SCARCE 2-SHILLING 6-PENCE ON BLUED PAPER. A RARITY IN THIS CHOICE CONDITION.

This value was adopted to serve postal duty and to replace the 2sh6p Inland Revenue embossed stamp, hence the "Postage & Revenue" legend. No essays were created for this value, as it was hastily executed by adapting a 3sh essay. It shows the tightly spaced wording, and the "2/6" looks more like a fraction than a shilling value.
