1881 (28 Dec) '2' on 24c emerald-green 'OFFICIAL', type 23 surcharge, horizontal strip of 6 being the complete bottom row of the sheet with wide margin at foot preserving both plate number '1' and current number '1', and typical narrow margin at right, o.g. with lovely fresh colour. Some marginal imperfections and light creasing affecting two stamps, but a spectacular and rare showpiece. Only 100 sheets surcharged, and most of the issue was used, with few unused multiples surviving.
