Description:

An interesting example with major faults. It is a quadruplet of war-issue King George VI two-and-halfpenny stamps, likely from a booklet. It shows significant signs of ageing, such as yellowing to the gum and fading colour on the face. The perforations have significant faults, with a foxed corner in the upper right, and the bottom left being completely trimmed and worn. Between the stamps the perforations are weak but intact. This may have some use, but not one that comes to mind at current.
