A MAJOR CHALON HEAD RARITY WITH ONLY SEVEN RECORDED UNUSED EXAMPLES, THIS BEING ONE OF THE FINEST KNOWN.

As an indication of rarity, the 1d orange vermilion on pelure paper (SG 81) has been absent from such major collections as Hind, Caspary, Dale-Lichtenstein, "Chalon" and Bartrop. The Hackmey collection contained two unused examples without gum. The original gum example offered here is an outstanding rarity.
