1885 5c on 24c brown-purple, wmk CA, type 21 surcharge, the dangerous photo-litho forgery by Sperati, "used".

An above average example (one shortish perf and minor stains), clearly showing the diagnostic flaws in the "C" of "CEYLON", which are often obscured. With BPA "SPERATI REPRODUCTION" handstamp on reverse.
