'Legendary' 1st De La Rue Printing Castles high values set 2s.6d. - £1. as perfect an unmounted mint never hinged set as you may ever see. Hand-picked marginal example immediately 'prove' 1st E2R watermark. Budget permitting, combine this set with the Waterlow set to immediately understand the significant differences of the two printings, easily understood when compared in front of you. Look at this super-fine printed portrait of QEII, compared with the 'woolly' whiskery printing by Waterlow. Note the fine sharp pointed 1st perforations top right, typical 1st DLR. If you seek a 1st DLR, this is the best set to acquire. Treasure (UPA CERTIFICATE)
