Ex Ric Slade-Slade & Dr Cecil Walkley: acquired for $2645 at our auction of 2/10/2010. RPSofV Certificate (2008). [One pane of 60 was affected.

1895 HALFPENNY ON THREE PENCE: 'Half-penny' in Green & in Red on Crown/CC 3d cinnamon SG 111a block of 4, horizontal crease at the top of the lower units, large-part o.g., Cat £360+.
1893 ONE PENNY ON THREEPENCE: 'ONE PENNY' in Green on Crown/CC 3d cinnamon SG 108 complete upper pane of 60 (10x6) with wing-margins at the base & sheet margins at top & right, all but two units with full unmounted o.g., Cat £840++ (mounted). [This is an interesting specialist piece. The WASG "Handbook" at page 103 states that the overprinting forme was "6 rows of 10". However, from the variation in positioning of the overprint on this half-sheet, it is clear that the forme was quite different, possibly 6 rows of 5, or even 2 rows of 5.
