CEYLON 1893 SG249 Mint

Stock Code: P212014020

1899 2r50 purple/red, lower marginal block of four, brilliant o.g. (hinged in margin only). A lovely block, extremely scarce in this quality. [Easton's "De La Rue History" (p.616) quotes the print figure as "42,000" (!), but this must be an error for 4200. The original Crown Agents requisition was for 4000 stamps.]
