CEYLON 1882 SGT88a Telegraph 80c on 1r red-brown error SURCHARGE DOUBLE used
Stock Code: P201014007
Telegraphs. 1882-94 80c on 1r red-brown, type T83 surcharge (issue of 6 Jul 85), lightly used upper half, showing ERROR SURCHARGE DOUBLE. With two complete impressions of 'CENTS', but with only the lower serifs double in the case of the 'EIGHTY' line. This looks like a clear case of the deliberate application of a second impression (here in greyer ink) to correct a perceived inking failure affecting the original impression. Trivial blemishes (minor rubs and wrinkles) but very rare, this being the only example we have seen.
