Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Interesting example with non-standard. Whilst the photogravure print and phosphorized paper narrows it down to three stamps, this specimen is closer a “dull purple” shade then a “turquiose-green” shade or “brownish-black”. However, using a Stanley Gibbons colour key shows that it would perhaps be best discribed as a “dull mauve”. Either way, this is a great example with minimal faults but a very partial, incomplete postmark.
Circular date stamp (CDS): unknown
