Description:

Good example of a quadruplet of colour change King George VI twopenny (2d). Watermark is easily visible as being of the sideways variety which would likely suggest that it has come from a coil; the short top perforations are short but this is perhaps not unexpetced given it’s source. Besides this the gum is clean and the face is vibrant. Decent overall.
