From the Surface Printed stamps an 1867-83 £5 orange UM marginal, watermark anchor, overprinted ‘CANCELLED’ and described as ‘superb’.


In the ‘Kings’ section a 1913 Waterlow Seahorse £1 in UM corner marginal block of 4 is estimated at £8,000.


Believed to be one of only 6 examples, a 1929 PUC 2½ d corner marginal pair with control & inverted watermark.
