The extraordinary almost complete reconstructions of 1d. black plates 1a to 11 and 2d. blue plates 1 and 2, comprising 1d. black plates 1a, 1b and 2 complete, plate 3 missing only two letterings, plates 4, 5 and 6 complete, plate 7 missing only two letterings, plate 8 complete, plate 9 missing only eight letterings, plate 10 missing only seventeen letterings, and plate 11 missing 91 letterings (a quite remarkable achievement considering only 700 sheets were printed), 2d. blue plate 1 complete and plate 2 missing only three letterings. The vast majority of the stamps have full margins, and the condition is generally much above average for such a holding. It is obviously not possible to guarantee the plating of all the stamps but all the plate 11's have been checked and are correctly plated. S.G. 16, cat. 1,348,500. Photo. The work of a dedicated collector over many years, we believe that this group represents a unique opportunity to acquire an almost complete set of reconstructed sheets of the World's first two Postage Stamps. In total over 96% - 3,237 of the 3,360 letterings, are represented and present a marvellous challenge for the next owner to complete. All are arranged on specially prepared sheets with spaces for all the letterings. Should this lot fail to sell intact it will be offered by individual plates in the following 14 lots

King George V: 191112 Downey Heads: Proofs: 1911 die 1A watermark crown 1d. carmine-rose, the famous and controversial perf. 14 (13.75 x 14) variety, superb with full original gum, very rare, it is believed that at most five examples exist, including the block of four (since divided and from which this example probably emanates) recorded and pictured in The British Philatelist (1915), volume VIII, page 31. Formerly listed as S.G. 327a but deleted and erroneously declared a fake, this stamp has recently been resubmitted to the R.P.S. and a new certificate (2002) has been issued stating that is a proof, it will be re-listed as a colour trial (with the similar currently listed trial in scarlet) by S.G. in the next edition of the Specialised Volume 2 catalogue. Photo. This mysterious stamp shows the 'bulging frame', particularly to the left of the crown (also known on an imperf proof - see Grosvenor sale 3 lot 323 and the 'Philatelic Review' vol 6 no. 1) and was also the subject of an article by Alain de Cadenet in the 'Philatelic Review' vol. 5 no. 1' - 'there is a copy of a penny perf. 14 in the Palace [Royal] collection, (this also shows the characteristic 'bulge'). It was a gift to King George V from Seymour Bennett, who was head of the stamping Dept at Somerset House.' De Cadenet also states that he had lamped a copy of this stamp -'it went plum coloured .. obviously a Somerset House printing', the stamp offered above also shows the plum reaction under ultraviolet light. Copies of these articles are included.

1933 (June) Bradbury Wilkinson & Co. Recess Printed Trials for the 1/2d.: Two essays based on the existing Mackennal 'Dolphins' design then in current use. The first design has a 'small' crown over the King's head and is printed in red-brown, the second design is much closer to the issued definitive 1d. and is in pale red-brown, each is perforated 15 x 14 on gummed paper watermarked Royal cypher (British Empire Exhibition - 'Wembley' paper), very fine and fresh with part or large part original gum. These essays were examples of Bradbury's ability to produce excellent stamps by recess printing, both quickly and cheaply. Whilst the results were superb, the cost was still more than the Post Office wanted and the idea was rejected. Ex de Cadenet and Shaida. Photo.
