London, Postal Union Congress, CDS Postmark
Notes: This cover is marked as 'Identified as a Forgery' on the reverse.
Had the postmark been genuine, this first day cover would have been worth in the region of £750. This item would make an extremely good 'space-filler', for those collectors who could never afford that sort of money - and that's assuming they could find a copy of it in the first place, let alone in such good condition!
Stock remaining: One Left!
