1839 certificate awarded to a "Miss Betsey Preston" for "Diligence and good Behaviour", the left vignette depicts the same "eagle on globe" design used for the first Boyd's issue (and adapted for later stamps), small faults, still a fine and attractive piece of ephemera, as there is no known pre-production material for the first Boyd's stamps this is the perfect frontispiece for an exhibit
