Description:

Interesting example of a horizontal strip of five colour change halfpenny stamps. Impossible to have come from a booklet. Lower edge suffers from short perforations, but the strip is in otherwise excellent condition which an unblemished gum and a clean, vibrant face. It appears to have been folded between the second and third stamp from the left, so there is weakness along that perforation.
