British issue 25c POSTAGE DUE proofs. (from "Classification of British Commonwealth Postage Dues, 1885 - 1984" by David L. Herendeen, Seoul, South Korea, August 1994)

### A first draft for the 1925 DUE /TAXE stamps.

### 1924 Postage Due - De La Rue Die Proof: Early matted essay of the postage due overprint. This item is extraordinary in several regards:
firstly, there are very few overprint essays for any postage due issues; secondly, it was executed using an imperforated proof of the 2½d / 25c blue postage stamp
which is not one of the values used for the postage dues; and finally, it is the actual endorsed approval copy from the De La Rue archives with additional instructions
to "slightly lower" the overprint.

### 1924 Postage Due - De La Rue Die Proof: A second matted essay of the postage due overprint. Executed 19 days after the essay shown
at left, the overprint has been lowered 2 mm. The new position was then approved as indicated by the endorsement. Ex the De La Rue Archives.

### Final plate proofs of some values of the British series.

According to Hals/Collas (p.113), final plate proofs in ultramarine on thick
proof paper were made. (The 1d exists as proof too) Almost certainly a full set of the British values was made.
