Lot 1137 KUT GVI 3s SG 147ab showing Damage to Mountain variety. This is a fine example, the variety well clear of postmarks. Very scarce.

Lot 1959 Circa1879, an essay showing Queen Victoria on her throne. Marginal block of four with double perfs along top. It is a more ambitious design but not as good a quality as the others of that era. Unknown status any info about it greatly welcomed.

Lot 1792 Complete London Chronicle newspaper for Tues 31st May to Thurs 2nd June 1757 – far and away the oldest lot in the catalogue. It is in excellent condition and shows (above) a fine example of NWPS ½d stamp tax at the bottom of page 2
