Great Britain-Queen Victoria-1857-A 2 Pence (Blue)-Plate 6-Illustrated

Illustrated below is an example of the 1857 printing on blued paper of the 2 Pence (blue) Plate 6. The plate was used again in 1858 the stamp of this printing printed on white paper. The later printing is the more highly valued of the two. There may be some confusion as to whether the plate number is 6 or 9 but stamps from plate 9 were impeforate. A sideview of the stamp appears below to illustrate plate number.
