1933 KGV Centenary 1½d black and blue (second printing). (Wider) lower marginal block of 12 showing imprint in margin, in addition row 2/2 of the block showing 'Break in cloud' flaw (row 9/3, second printing only). However, the flaw skilfully and largely erased with a sharp instrument. Hinged on two stamps otherwise superb unmounted and very scarce in this ideal positional format. A highly unusual item. SG 129, 129a
 
Note: a 2020 BPA certificate accompanies the block detailing the erasure, and further comments 'The printers Bradbury, Wilkinson are known to have erased other varieties, such as the "Extra Flagstaff' on stamps of Gambia and Malta, and this erasure may be similar'
