a- c1

49xe 10/- grey & pink with faint diagonal sans serif 'Specimen' Handstamp (12x2mm) in violet, no gum. Chris Ceremuga Certificate (2012) states "...most likely from a display of currently available stamps". [The ACSC records a single example with 'SPECIMEN' Overprint & an additional upper-case 'SPECIMEN' Handstamp - BW #49xe - applied in London. We don't share Mr Ceremuga's opinion regarding the origin of this stamp. All other display stamps we have seen have a seriffed 'SPECIMEN' Handstamp. We expect this stamp emanates from an internal Post Office file]
