Good afternoon John,

As an added bonus I have mentioned your find on the Great Britain Philatelic societies' discussion board under the Victorian line engraved section, as there are many eminent member philatelists that study these stamps that may give an alternative opinion upon seeing your specimen.

Although I respect Mr. Clarke's opinion with a stamp of such rarity, other people's opinion may differ, I therefore think that under the circumstances you are following the correct procedure. Fred.

Since my last posting to you on the 2nd of January, I have managed to scan a mint specimen of plate 77 in relation to what Tim Clarke stated regarding the position of the tails of the 7s not being in the right place.

This is what he meant.........



The 7s in the mesh appear to be more centralised than the ones on your stamp, but I must admit, the one obtained by SG don't appear to be either ! Fred.
