CAYMAN ISLANDS 1932 SG84/95 Proof

Stock Code: P189013047

1932 Centenary issue, the unique and remarkable series of working die proofs from the Waterlow archive, sixteen proofs in all, each in black on thick wove, with mostly 2mm margins except 6mm at top where the die and roller numbers, and production dates, are written in black M/S. Each proof with diagonal 'Cancelled/3/9/34' in red M/S, indicating the destruction date of the dies. The series comprises; 1) composite of the two heads: 2) master of the double vignette (for the 1s to 10s values): 3) undenominated master die for the 1/4d to 6d: 4) undenominated frame for the 1s to 10s: and then 5-12) individual die proofs for the 1/4d to 6d values : 13-16) individual frame die proofs for the 1s to 10s values. Varying degrees of soiling, to be expected with such production proofs, and some faults, with the undenominated frame and 3d die proof both cut in at right, nevertheless a splendid and very desirable frontispiece for this popular set, and an essential component of a serious collection of this country. Neatly presented on two album pages, ex Marston, Cooley and Maisel
