Description:

Outstanding example of a King Edward VII fourpence (4d) stamp with a mostly complete YEOVIL postmark. This particular specimen has calm but vibrant green interior with a deep chocolate-brown frame.

The face is thankfully clean and well preserved, and the perforations have minor faults ignoring the slightly damaged upper right corner. This appears to be the result of miscue perforations, but I could be terribly mistaken.

There is a slight crease in the gum, but it’s not visible from the front. The Imperial Crown watermark is clear to both the eye and under light; and is slightly off centre but otherwise complete. The draw to this stamp, however, is unmistakably the well positioned and complete postmark that doesn’t massively obscure the face.
