Comprehensive study of the damage sustained by the electros for the King Edward VII 1d stamp. The plates for the low values, especially the ½d and 1d stamps, were used for long periods, and so it is not surprising that defects occurred in many of them. Profusely illustrated with enlargements of the stamps, showing the many different tiny defects.
