RCIN 729105

  • Watermark: Fleur-de-lys; countermark: IV

    Condition: one fold line. Verso: induced discolouration; bottom right, water-stained patch from the removal of Cumberland's cipher label - any shadow or ghosting has been trimmed off. This was evidently a much larger sheet from which a considerable amount was trimmed, probably during the late eighteenth or early nineteenth centuries
