1902 De La Rue DIE PROOF for the KEVII 2½d ‘POSTAGE’ duty working die. Printed in black on glazed card (92x60mm). Handstamped ‘BEFORE HARDENING’ in black and datestamped ‘10 JUL. 02’ in blue.
 
Note: following decisions to print the five lower values in monocolour from single working plates, the duty (frame) plates were no longer required and were presumably destroyed.
