Neale, Brockhampton Street House Cheltenham (redirected 8 Jersey place - name now changed), red wax seal very good condition entire, accompanied by 1966 RPS London photo-certificate signed John Wilson (submitted by Major McKay) - certificate states that it is impossible to certify as used on this cover. It's fair to suggest that this 'half length' 3d may be certified today - bearing in mind the provenance signed by well-known R A G Lee (RPS) upon the invoice for the certificate (£1 + postage) which states "Dear Major McKay, Purely as a matter of interest there is a 'brother' envelope to this in Her Majesty's Collection. Sir John was most interested and asked me to tell you." A fascinating entire awaiting research (UPA CERTIFICATE).
