1481 **/* 1841 2d Blue White Lines Added 1841 Postal Notice complete bearing 1d Plate 5 [JJ] (good even margins) and right marginal 2d, with blank corner letter squares from the small trial plate of 12 (SG-Spec #DP43), together with two 1d pink envelopes, H&B EP3a (69x106mm - blue-red-blue silk threads) and EP4a (83x128mm Mulready envelope paper - red-blue-red silk threads) overprinted large type 'SPECIMEN' in red, a fine example which includes the wrapper it was to be mailed in. SG Spec #PN3, Cat £10,000. [The envelopes are interesting as Huggins & Baker state that the small envelope EP3a may have been privately produced from the larger EP4a and rate it as NR (not recorded) unused. Clearly this Postal Notice proves that that EP3a was a regular PO issue. It is also clear that these envelopes where folded from a sheet of paper after the stamp impression was done.] Also see Lot 1645
