1902 De La Rue DIE PROOF for the KEVII 3d ‘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.
