VF mint NH matched set of plate blocks of the "brown background" variety of the 1983 issue 48c "Cradle" medium-value definitive. Previously thought to be a magenta missing colour error, the colour variety is due to an anomaly in the ink used by the printer. With an upper right plate #2 block of the true colour for comparison. 2017 Unitrade.
