VERY FINE. ONE OF THE FINEST KNOWN EXAMPLES OF THE 1862 6-PENCE WATERMARK THREE ROSES AND THISTLE ERROR.

This error, in which the rose emblem replaced the shamrock in the watermark, is found only on position T-F. A tiny number are known. The others we have seen are either poorly centered and/or have faults. The example offered here is one of the finest (if not the finest) copies in existence.
