SKU 322171867697

A well centered and very fine good mint OG example of the 50c deep purple King Edward VII stamp from the 1903-1911 issue of the same name. Printed on vertical wove paper showing fine vertical mesh. The gum is a shiny cream. With only 500,000 stamps originally printed in 1908, this is unquestionably the most elusive post 1897 regularly issued stamp, especially in very fine condition.

Centering/margins: 45/70
