    1856 (Oct 10): 3 d. dull green, imperforate, the extremely rare error on wmk'd "2" paper, a superb used example with large 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 are in much worse condition than the example offered here. Finer than the exceptional Isleham example, this is, without doubt, one of the top examples recorded for overall quality and beauty. Cert. RPSL (1939) Gi = £ 3'750.rnProvenance: Collection G. H.
