India Lithograph QV 1854 SG18 4a Blue & Pale Red w/Cert VFU CV£1100++

Provenance – Ex Burrus 1963 sold for 42 GBP – One of the finest examples extant despite the recent pink BPA certificate (2017) stating ‘repaired on reverse’ presumably very professional paper fill was done prior to 1963, and slight backing was removed needed to detect for certificate. The paper fill can only be detected by a subtle difference in paper translucence when held to light – Head Die I [Slight worn state of stone] Frame Die I wide spacing/setting Watermark/sheet position 1

Extraordinary overall condition humungous margins (2 showing blue wavy lines) very fresh highly attractive condition despite very subtle paper fill not at all detracting in my view
