CEYLON 1869 SGO5 var Official

Stock Code: P212012723

Official. 1869 type O1 "SERVICE" opt, 2s deep blue, exceptionally showing the prominent R15/1 RE-ENTRY (occurring just once per sheet of 240), fine part o.g. The variety visible in the letters "C", "L" and "W" and in the lower corners. Prepared for use, but never issued, and although 20 sheets were originally printed, it seems certain that most were later destroyed. A rarity for the specialist.
