A VF CDS used example of the 10/- dull green and deep brown, King Edward VII De La Rue Keyplate stamp from the 1904-1906 Multiple Crown CA watermarked issue, on ordinary paper. According to J.F Ince in his definitive work, there were a total of 6,240 stamps on ordinary paper issued. Cancelled with a December 21, 1909 Lagos registered cancel.

2022 Scott Classic values a VF-75 used example at $275 USD. This is a very scarce stamp used, due to the fact that the green ink is doubly fugitive, and so few were printed to begin with. Mint examples outnumber used easily by a factor of ten to one.

I have written two blog posts which reviews the points of interest with this issue. You can access the first one here.
