UNOVERPRINTED: POSTAL FISCALS: St George & the Dragon 10/- yellow-orange complete imperforate sheet of 120 (12x10) on thin ungummed card, barely noticeable pencil notations in the margins, minor blemishes on the reverse. A rare sheet. Ex JRW Purves & Dr John Miler. [Bill McCredie's perforated half-sheet of 60 sold for $670]

This sheet clearly demonstrates the chaotic platelaying that was apparently inspired by the similarly dubious workmanship of Perkins Bacon.
