No Longer Available - CYPRUS 1918 SG. Revenue

Stock Code: P178002736

Revenues. 1918 (23 Sep) piece (90x54mm) from the De La Rue correspondence book with two IMPERFORATE COLOUR TRIALS of the KGV 9pi, each upper marginal on MCA paper, both printed in purple and red but respectively on yellow and sea-green paper. The former with red M/S endorsement below "Approved/Signed WHM (= W. H. Mercer)/23/9/18". A unique and highly attractive item, with no other colour trials for the KGV issue recorded, and documenting the change in colour for this value, necessitated by the recent loss of a consignment of 500 sheets (total face value over £2000) in the original purple/red colour. Ex Bols (described on the back cover of his 1979 monograph) and De La Rue archives, and referred to by Podger (p.59), but not illustrated.
