CEYLON 1887 SG201b Mint

Stock Code: P212013964

1887 1r12 dull rose, wmk upright from late printing (c.1895 ?), lower marginal horizontal pair with plate number "1" below left stamp, brilliant o.g. Right stamp with a couple of slightly shortish perfs (and trivial thin spot in margin), mentioned for accuracy, still a lovely and extremely scarce pair. Post office fresh ! [The date c.1895, or later, is suggested by the occurrence of the 1895 1r12 "On Service" with both wmk positions (= SG O17/b). We have not noted usage of SG 201b (or O17b) prior to 1899.]
