    "ZANTE ERROR" 1862/67: 10 l. orange-yellow on blued paper, used example with large margins all round lightly cancelled at Zante with lower part of Zakynthos datestamp '111' apparent, the datestamp leaving the variety "Inverted Control Figure 10 printed on the face of the stamp" remarkably clear. Reverse without the Control Figures, two tiny thin spots not detracting from the otherwise superb appearance. Just 15 examples (ref. Coundouros) recorded although we believe the figure to be nearer 20 known of which as many as 11 examples are cut into. All are in used condition. After the legendary 'Solferino' the 'Zante Error' is the rarest of all Large Hermes Head varieties. A wonderful and important rarity. Gi 19ba = £ 17'000/Scott 19b = $ 23'500/Hellas 18dNn = € 17'000.
