Description:

Cylinder block of 6 (2x3) with right and bottom margin. Clean face to the majority of stamps, although some spotting on the margin and gum. Evidence of folding along perforations, with several on the leftmost side broken between stamps. Upper left stamp has small tear.

A very good example of the Tudor Crown watermark since it is clearly visible from both the front and rear. Value perhaps derived from ignoring top two stamps!
