Red-brown 1d from black plate 11

1d Red stamp lettered E - B identified as coming from black plate 11 using Guide Lines to the Penny Black by P C Litchfield.

Period of use: The very first printings from Plate 11 were made on 29 and 30th January, 1941 in red, rather than black, with the imprimatur copies registered at Somerset House also being in red.

Cancellation: Maltese Cross cancellation in black ink.

Main identification clues:
