Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Great example of a horizontal pair of colour change King George VI twopenny stamps. The sideways watermark is easily visible and it suggests - along with the short perforations along the top edge - that it has originated from a coil. Most perforations are good, and both the gum and face are clean.
