I have just published a new blog post discussing the different varieties of the perforated penny reds. I discuss the differences, give tips for identifying them, but I also get into the "why" - the backstory that explains why the varieties exist. Understanding the why will help you remember what all the different varieties are and keep them all straight in your head. You can access the post https://brixtonchrome.com/blogs/cla...in-1854-1864
After you have read the post I would encourage you to take a look at the material we have on offer in the auction this week, as it covers all the stamps except for the pale shades of rose, rose-red and rose pink. you can access the auction listings here: https://brixtonchrome.com/collectio...tions?page=5
I hope you enjoy the post, and as always I welcome any comments you may have.
