Ceylon

Scott #4

Major Re-entry

This is a twisted re-entry showing in the 'C' and 'N' of CEYLON, as well as much of POSTAGE and TWO PENCE at the bottom. Doubling is also seen in both lower corner ornaments, as well as the panel above the 'T' of  TWO and to the left of the panel containing POSTAGE. There is doubling on the portrait itself, showing most noticeably on the nose, upper lip and eyebrow. There is also slight doubling found in the hair and jewels of the tiara.
