CEYLON 1882 SGT22 Telegraph

Stock Code: P201006939

Telegraphs. 1882 (7 Feb) 25c lilac, "GRAPH" opt on Stamp Duty fiscal for provisional use, neatly cancelled on fragment by part "15 - 2" (= !5 Feb) strikes of Colombo ds (and tied by impression). Slight creasing and soiling, still a very good example of this famous rarity, of a unique type within the Ceylon series. Only 540 issued, with the overprint "TELE GRAPH" applied to vertical pairs, of which only the upper units were likely to survive. We have recorded less than a dozen examples, including those in the Tapling and Royal collections. (cat £900).
