Description:

Excellent copy with a slightly paler colour then standard. Print is offset slightly to the left. Gum is intact and unblemished, although a small crease is just visible. The watermark is clear and easy to see under normal light, but unfortunately the perforations - while generally good - do suffer from slight discolouration along the left edge.
