    1856 (Oct 10): 3 d. dull green, imperforate, the extremely rare error on wmk'd "2" paper, a superb used example with clear margins all round, of excellent colour and lightly cancelled in black. Exceptional for this great rarity - just 19 examples are recorded, it should be noted that Burrus, Caspary, Dale-Lichtenstein, Hind, Slade Slade and Wiggins had no examples of this stamp, and the examples in Ginger, España and White were in much worse condition than the example offered here. Without doubt this stamp must be in the top three known for overall quality. Cert. RPSL (1947) Gi = £ 3'750.rnrnProvenance: Collection Isleham, RL, New York, 11 March 1987.rn
