1900 2s on 1s green British Bechuanaland, TYPE 1 SERIFFED SURCHARGE (showing '1' for 'I' in 'BESIEGED'), tied to small piece by part 'AP 21' cds. Some toning, but good colour and appearance. An excessively rare item, being only the third recorded example with type 1 surcharge (rather than the 'normal' type 2 surcharge), and likely to be from a trial setting which was then included in and sold with the regular issue. An essential part of the Mafeking story. BPA cert (2011). (cat £38,000)

C.G.H. - MAFEKING 1900 (USED) SG19a

Stock code: G1453047 | SG number: 19a
£55,000
1900 (Apr) 3d pale blue/blue 'Baden-Powell', 18½mm wide, ERROR REVERSED DESIGN, the upper right corner example from the one sheet of 12 printed, centrally cancelled by 'AP 27 1900' cds on fragment of original piece. Exceptional condition, showing the earliest known date of use, und undoubtedly the finest of the seven used examples recorded (in addition to three unused), of which two used (and one unused) are in the Royal Philatelic Collection, leaving just five in private hands. One of the greatest Boer War rarities, and truly one of the great and most extraordinary error stamps of the British Empire. Such a 'reversed design' error could only occur as a result of the unique photographic production process employed for this issue, involving the use of a glass negative plate. In this one instance the plate was printed from the wrong side, and the whole deisgn is a slightly out of focus mirror image, with 'head to right' and all the inscriptions reversed. Ex 'Salisbury' (CRL 20/9/95, lot 110, realised £27,600), and 'Goodyear' (CRL 8/6/93, lot 155), and not seen on the market since that time.

Stock code: P10112316 | SG number: 67
£1,250

Stock code: P10112315 | SG number: 67/a

1892 (Oct) 2½d on 3d ultramarine, type 8 surcharge, the complete sheet of 240 (separated into four panes of 60, each 6x10) formerly in the collection of Mr. J. Schoeman, whcih demonstrated that the first setting was indeed of 240, rather than 120 as believed by Buckley and Marriott in the 1966 Handbook. Overall good to fine condition, with fresh colour and part o.g. to o.g., but with some creases, separation and missing pieces of selvedge, and with one block of four missing (but replaced) from the lower right pane. The major variety 'Printer's quad after surcharge' (= SG 61a) and a host of constant smaller varieties are present, all written up on four exhibition pages.

Creases affecting some columns, nevertheless overall fine condition for such an item, and now rare in this form. A truly fascinating sheet, as documented in Buckley and Marriott chapter 11. [The setting comprises 'a' x41, 'b' x8, 'c' x10, 'd' x9, 'e' x9, 'f' x15 and 'g' x28]. (cat £2435++).

(most stamps unmounted). R10/2 with fault at foot but overall very fine, and showing 'TRIPLE SURCHARGE' (one impresion partly in margin) on R6/1, which is a rare occurrence. [Surcharge types present are 'a' x23, 'b' x1, 'c' x4, 'd' x4, 'e' x5, 'f' x7 and 'g' x 16]. Professionally annotated on exhibition page, with chart of varieties. (cat £644++).

ORANGE FREE STATE 1896 (UNUSED) SG77/9

Stock code: P10115857 | SG number: 77/9
£125
1896 'Halve/Penny.' on 3d ultramarine, type 10 surcharge, complete lower left and lower right panes of 60 (6x10), each with virtually full margins, together providing the full setting of 120 (12x10). The left pane with error 'Peuny.' at R3/1, the right pane from a late state with variety 'No stop' at R1/6 and R5/6, as well as the usual R10/6. The left pane without gum and with odd small faults, but the right pane o.g. with most stamps unmounted. A fascinating pair for study, the right pane very scarce with THREE no stop varieties. Neatly presented on two exhibition pages. (cat £188+)

ORANGE FREE STATE 1896 (UNUSED) SG77/9

Stock code: P10115855 | SG number: 77/9
£195
1896 'Halve/Penny.' on 3d ultramarine, type 10 surcharge, complete folded sheet of 240 (four panes, each 6x10), showing two impressions of the 12x10 setting, with error 'Peuny.' at R3/1 of the left panes and variety 'No stop' at R10/6 of the right panes, unmounted o.g. Inevitable slight faults (two stamps with surface damage, creases and separation, especially in the lower panes), still good condition for such an item, with all gutters still intact. A remarkable survival. (cat £308+).

ORANGE FREE STATE 1896 (UNUSED) SG77/9var

£375
1896 'Halve/Penny.' on 3d ultramarine, type 10 surcharge, complete folded upper half-sheet of 120 (two panes 6x10) showing the full setting of 120, with error 'Peuny.' at R3/1 left pane and variety 'No stop' at R10/6 right pane, large part o.g. (most stamps unmounted). The surcharge misplaced downwards, so that the TOP ROW IS WITHOUT BAR, while all other rows show BAR AT TOP (with additional bar in margin below row 10). Some creases, and minor soiling at upper right, but overall fine and fresh. Very rare and remarkable as a double pane with misplaced surcharge, with even single examples of R3/1 (SG 79) and R10/6 (SG 78) being rare in this form. Neatly presented on exhibition page.
