Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Terrific example of a King George V, jubilee issue three halfpence (1½d) pane with a inverted watermark.This would have originated from the May 1935 Silver Jubilee Issue Post Office stamp booklet (SG BB16) Despite having been used - as evidenced by the very faint central circular date stamp, it nevertheless remains completely intact, with no broken interior perforations and the margin undamaged. A few perforations around the pane are broken or short, but it does not significantly detract from the piece. The gum in unblemished and unhinged. The watermark is clearly visible both by eye and under light, and can be seen to be the Block Cypher (G V R & Crown) in an inverted orientation.
Very faint circular date stamp (CDS): unknown.
Block Cypher (Inverted)
