SG172 1881 1d. Lilac, die II. Used on a wonderful SCHULTZE GUNPOWDER advertising envelope, London to Stirling 1901.

Printed in black and telling the story of the Marquis Torrigiani and a wager to kill 850 Pigeons out of 1000 at 27 meters... he killed 935, winning the wager and establishing a world record. A delightful, politically incorrect cover.
