India-Jind-1903-06-A King Edward the 7th 4 Anna Postage Stamp-Official Overprint-Illustrated

Shown below is the 1903-1906 4 Anna stamp issued for Jind, an Indian Convention State during British rule. The side-face portrait is of Edward the 7th who assumed the British throne in 1902. The official and overprinted issues for stamps used in India at the time showed some variety in the spelling of Jind, with the name spelled alternatively as "Jeend", "Jhind" and then finally "Jind"the spelling used on the issues from George the 5th onwards.
