CEYLON 1885 SG193 Mint

Stock Code: P212013853

1885 1r12c on 2r50c dull rose, type 27 De La Rue surcharge, lower left corner block of 4 with plate number "1", showing stamp-size 'labels' with moire pattern at left, fresh o.g. with lovely colour. (Lower pair unmounted). Trivial gum wrinkles and marginal blemishes mentioned for accuracy, still a wonderful positional piece, illustrating the peculiar plate format adopted for this value. Only 65 sheets printed, with any block rare. [In 2007 we sold the matching UPPER left corner block with current number "30", but that was less fine. We have never seen any other blocks of this calibre.]
