One of the key aniline stamps of the King George V era with a strong aniline presence. Printed in 1917 on rough paper with a single Crown watermark, which as a result of the strong aniline the watermark can easily be seen from the back. The stamp is in choice mint unhinged condition and the non-aniline regular issue is catalogued in Stanley Gibbons under 47a and the ACSC 72A.

Beautiful example of aniline ink and a quite a scarce stamp!

smauggie, it's quite scarce and I was lucky that it came my way. I forgot to add the certificate which I have now included. It would be the best aniline-red (or should I say aniline-scarlet) I have seen to date, even the perfs are superb.
