Embossed design with albino frame die sunk directly onto 74 x 77mm card with full die sinkage, brilliant color, few small light toned spots outside the design, Very Fine and unusual, this fits elements of both 79-E23 and 79-E25 without exactly corresponding to either, as a large die essay it would more naturally fit under 79-E23 but it does not have the printed border around the design, undoubtedly rare (Image)
