1924 Wembley - Training school black bars - pair

A nice pair of the 1d red overprinted with training school black bars.
The perforations at the rear have been re-enforced with a stamp hinge and under a glass it looks like there is partial seperation of the perfs at the bottom between the pairs .. this explains why it was re-enforced.

Examples of this issue are rare and multiples very much so.
We are aware of three pairs and a block of 4 known and another pair that we were told about, but this has never been confirmed.
A single example of this stamp that we sold on ebay (2009) went for over 50 and this pair is offered at below that level.
