Great Britain 1865 1d Black "Royal reprint" Plate 66 (watermark inverted), SGDP35a
Great Britain 1865 1d Black "Royal reprint" Plate 66 (watermark inverted), SGDP35a.
A very fine unused close to large four margin imperforate block of four lettered 'MC-ND' with original gum. Light gum wrinkles as usually seen in this issue and nevertheless an attractive and scarce multiple.
This special unissued printing in September 1865 was requested by young members of the Royal Family for examples of the 1d Black. The full background behind this exclusive issue of the penny black remains a philatelic mystery.
