CEYLON 1869 SGO5a Official QV 2s deep blue type O1 Service overprinted imperforate

Stock Code: P212012645

Official. 1869 2s deep blue, type O1 "SERVICE" opt, IMPERFORATE HORIZONTAL PAIR, close to large margins, fresh part o.g. Prepared for use, but never issued. Very rare as a pair, and probably the finest of the few recorded, as the others of which illustrations exist all seem to be touched or cut into on at least one side. [Believed by the previous owner to be ex Ferrary, but different from Ferrary XI. 372, which subsequently passed into the Hind collection. The Royal Collection has only a single example.]
