Without doubt one of the most delicate and beautiful of all the Treasury essays of which only six examples have been recorded: four reside as a strip in the Royal Philatelic Collection; the fifth example was last recorded for sale in the Colonel Bates collection in 1934.

A magnificent exhibition piece.
