SG 207 cat £40,000 for M, unpriced for U, & should be valued at least at similar level. This is the ONLY EXAMPLE with postal cancel of SG 207 ever recorded, & should not be confused with examples of the £15 from later printings SG 207a upright wmk perf 11½ (of SG 207a there was apparently a part sheet in remainders that were CTO).
