King George VI

Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Excellent example of what I assume to be a coil strip of 5 (5x1) late issue, colour change King George VI definitives. Imperforate along the top edge due to misalignment when cutting isn’t abnormal but perhaps isn’t preferable. All other perforations are in otherwise good condition. Both the face and gum are unblemished; there is no hinging and the watermark is fairly easy to see as being of the sideways variant.
