Some three decades back I 'won' the attached from an Australian auction which purported to be the Lister 'missing brown tube ' variety. As I am not really a QE collector it languished for many years but recently I showed it to a London auction house who said that in their opinion it was a Dry Print rather than the missing colour variety. Two questions: is a dry print the initial stages of a missing colour and secondly does it have any value?

SG does list a brown omitted but you do have a faint trace of colour suggesting either a dry as mentioned but unlikely, probably a very poor grade print colour - it would seem this period of printing was very heavily influenced by a lack of dedication to quality.
