Description:

This 10p (£0.10) stamp comes diretc from a 2019 Post Office counter sheet, and thus has the iridescent date and source code “M19L MAIL”, plus the usual “ROYAL MAIL” waves. This particular variant is on type sL security backing paper, and comes from the left margin of the sheet, with the colour code “LIGHT TAN” shown.

While generally unremarkable, this particular specimen appears to have slightly offset fluorescent (or by the catch-all term “phosphor”) bands, with them appearing notably leftwards of their proper position. This thus lead to a thiner left fluorescent band, whilst the rightmost side of the stamp peaks through untreated. There is nothing particularly noteworthy that can be seen by the naked eye, and the stamp itself is in fine mint condition on the backing paper.

For reference, the bands were photographed in low-light on a black background using a Google Pixel 3a XL phone, and the stamps were put under an imported Prinz “2050” mains-powered 366 nm long wave UV-test lamp.
