    1854: Perkins Bacon Diadem Proof, from a small Plate of six impressions (2 x 3), recess printed (engraved by Frederick Heath) in a Rose Lake shade on vertically laid paper, each with waxed corners at lower left to prevent possible re-use and the value and 'Postage' erased from the transfer roller before laying down, marked "2" in manuscript at base. Rare and most attractive.rnrnNote: A.G. Rigo de Righi believed these to have been laid down in 1870 as Colour Charts for the proposed Great Britain 1870 1½d. lake definitive stamp. The Reginald M. Phillips collection at the National Postal Museum contains 12 of these Proofs in varying colours on varying types and colours of paper. The example offered here is very close in shade to the issued 1½d. adhesive.
