Circa 1840, are this PB and PC Penny Plates and a horizontal strip of four Two Pence blue Plates, PC-PF. Originally posted to Malta, the inside of the note contains the inscription "I enclose a few of the new Post stamps which are to be stuck on letters. They may be a novelty in Malta." This lot exhibits a very early example of franking dating, only three days after its introduction. Auction estimate is from £80,000 to £90,000 as part of Spink's current Philatelic sales series.
