GB 1882 SG163var Pl.13 Specimen
1882 1s Purple Pl.13 (Comb Perf. 14). A magnificent unmounted o.g. horizontal pair lettered EB-EC, overprinted "SPECIMEN". This proposed issue was to be surcharged and form part o the unified 1883 issue, however after printing over 23,500 sheets from plates 13 and 14 the issue was abandoned and all the stock was destroyed. To date no examples appear to have survived, The specimens are the sole survivors of this issue, of which only 11 (Including this pair) have been recorded by Wiseman. Insignificant gum wrinkle at lower right corner of EC, nevertheless a stunning multiple with superb colour and of the highest rarity. Spec. K8Cs.
