BRITISH GUIANA 1881 SG155c Mint 2 on 12c Official surcharge double type 23+24

Stock Code: P190016894

1881 '2' on 12c pale violet 'OFFICIAL', error SURCHARGE DOUBLE with the surcharge at centre type 24 and the other at foot type 23, large part o.g. Insiginficant discoloration at upper right corner, still fine and excessively rare. Ex Townsend (lot 182) and adjacent (on the right) to the upper stamp of the vertical pair in the 'Great' collection (lot 259). Apparently R7/5 in one sheet where the surcharge was misplaced upwards, leaving the bottom row without surcharge. A further impression in the correct position resulted in ten of the 60 stamps showing both types (five with type 24 above, as here. and five with type 23 above), some of which were used (including an example in the Royal Collection). BPA cert (1994). (cat £6000)
