Description:

Acceptable example with some faults. Top left corner shows a minor crease, whilst some perforations are shorter then would be liked. Print is slightly offset towards the lower left corner, whilst the face is blemished by an untidy postmark. Reverse is obviously lacking gum, but is otherwise in decent condition with few blemished. Watermark easily visible.
