Dear All,

I'm looking for a good visual reference of the ivory head referred to in Birch. He writes (P.36), "Several specimens have been found showing a perfect 'Ivory head' design on the reverse side of the stamp. Quite comparable with same variety in 1840-41 issues".

If anybody has one, please be very kind and post it here.

Thanks a million, Robin

Disappointing response (nil) despite being posted in QV as well.

Since posting the original query, I found the attached. It had been sent to me about 25 years ago. Unfortunately it is too low resolution to be used, and I have no notes for it. I hope it is of sufficient interest for somebody to comment on.

Apologies. The original was "not a supported image", but I have now managed to convert it to jpeg. Robin

To Stephen Sayers,

Hi Stephen. As nobody has responded to this query, I'd be most grateful if you could answer, please.

Many thanks,
