The examples below are both PP11 a 1d. rose-red (SG 40 or C10) plates unknown with the J. & C. Boyd & Co. type 5 underprint.

Note.  There is a marked variation in shade between these two underprints.  The first shows a fairly normal red underprint while the second a much darker brown-red.  This appears to be quite common for the unofficial J. & C. Boyd & Co. underprint type 5.
