in red and black each dated AU 21 in slightly larger font than normal and intentionally without year on QV 1d drab (SG.37) in not possible for period red ink (actually too magenta in colour) but contrasting with what appears to be light full genuine red vertical A10 (really rare if true); on 1885 QV d green Perf.14 (impossible as BAR taken over by extended Barrouallie cds by August 1884); and most dangerous of all 1883 QV 4d blue Perf.12 (SG.43) which if on its own would have escaped most expert eyes. A rare group which needs to be preserved for the record.
