BAHAMAS 1942 SG173/b Mint
1942 'Columbus' 3s slate-purple and myrtle-green, folded upper right corner block of 9 with sheet number '483', R2/12 variety Stop after 'COLUMBUS', unmounted o.g. (except minor off-setting on two normals). Odd minor tones (mainly on gum) and some perf separation in top margin, still fine colour and appearance. Very rare and desirable in this positional form. KGVI Expertising cert (2015) rather harshly notes 'A couple of foxed areas'. [N.B. It is understood that the Post Office authorities noticed this 'error', in an early consignment, at the time of issue, and officially removed R2/12 from most sheets]. (cat £2500++)
