Lot# 3942 - Auction 227-233
Provisional Issue 1915 (Jan 1): 1 d. on 2 d. on 10 pf. carmine, Setting 1 position 9, a fine unused example of excellent colour and centering with "Large 1 superimposed over 2 of 2 d.", an unrecorded example from this position of the Setting. Gibbs, page 92, recorded four examples (two unused from positions 3 and 7, positions 8 and 10 on cover, ex Bute), and it is likely that this is the final 'missing' example from the Setting and that just the five stamps were actually surcharged. Fresh and very fine with superb large part og. A great rarity in wonderful condition. Cert. RPS (1966), BPA (1996) Gi = £ 28'000.
