3037° og ImageGREAT BRITAIN, 1863, 4p Pale Red, Imperforate (SG Specialised J53(2)d; SG 82a; Scott 34d). Horizontal pair with sheet margin at top, other margins ample, Plate 4 (with hair lines added), lettered AI-AJ, original gum, lightly hinged, pretty color, couple horizontal creases in top margin

VERY FINE AND SELDOM ENCOUNTERED IMPERFORATE PAIR OF THE 1863 4-PENCE PALE RED FROM PLATE 4.

Imprimaturs from this plate can be distinguished by either the lettering and/or the color shade. Since some of the lettering overlaps, as is the case with this example, the shade is the key indicator of identification. Imprimaturs are in a much deeper shade of Red.

3038° nhbl ImageGREAT BRITAIN, 1877, 4p Sage Green (SG Specialised J64; SG 153; Scott 70). Block of six, Mint N.H., Plate 15, lettered D-A to E-C, wonderfully fresh color on bright paper

FINE. A RARE MULTIPLE OF THE 4-PENCE IN SAGE GREEN FROM PLATE 15, ESPECIALLY SO IN SUCH PRISTINE CONDITION.

Plate 15 was originally used to print the 4p Vermilion beginning in 1875 before the change of color the following year. Due to the shorter span of life in printing the Sage Green, Plate 15 is slightly rarer than Plate 16.

Ex Baillie. With 1989 B.P.A. certificate. SG as hinged block and two singles £10,800 (Image)
