CEYLON 1863 SG56 Mint

Stock Code: P212013051

1863-66 8d reddish brown, wmk CC type 5, perf 12½, horizontal strip of four with lovely colour and remarkable clarity of impression, large part o.g. (slight separation at centre). Minor blemishes (some shortish perfs at foot, right stamp with gum crease), nevertheless a rare and striking multiple with a desirable pedigree (ex Baron de Worms, Harmer 20/6/1938 lot 606, and Gordon Bailey, Harmer 14/5/1962, lot 400) of considerable technical interest, as the vertical perfs have clearly been applied from the reverse rather than the front.
