Lot# 4591 - Auction 234-243

  • Lot# : 4591 Transvaal

    Overprinted "V.R. / Transvaal" 1879 (April 18): New Printings on green paper, 3 d. mauve on green, imperforate, optd. Type 6, a used horizontal pair, marginal from base of sheet, cut horizontally at top and missing what would have been italic "V. R." but with "Transvaal" intact on each, faint numeral cancellation can be seen and both stamps creased and with small tears. However this was most likely a "Print on the Gummed Side" pair where most of the design and cancel were removed when soaked off the envelope. An oddity.
