Australia #379 (SG#360) Two Pound Sepia Philip Parker King, 1963-1966 Definitive Issue, A Fine NH Example

Sold out

A very fine appearing, but fine NH example of the 2 pound sepia Phillip Parker King stamp from the 1963-1966 definitive issue. The stamp has the lightest diagonal bend affecting the upper left corner in the margin. It does not break the paper, cannot be seen from the front and is not even obvious from the back. Nevertheless, it does reduce the grade from VF-75 to F-65
