1859 Perf 12 by Robinson Queen on Throne 6d blue, trimmed or imperf (?) at base, indistinct barred numeral cancellation. Unlisted by Gibbons. Ex Perry. [Illustrated by Kellow at page 104 where he states "...status is uncertain and may be bogus". However, the perfs match other undeniably genuine Perf 12 stamps and it is reasonable to suggest that Robinson perforated a small number - perhaps a part-sheet only - as he seems to have been intent on perforating all remaining stocks]
