CYPRUS 1934 SG136a Mint 1pi UNIQUE block of 4 IMPERFORATE BETWEEN
Stock Code: P190010821
1934 (1 Dec) 1pi black and red-brown "Soli Theatre", left marginal block of four comprising TWO VERTICAL PAIRS, ERROR IMPERFORATE BETWEEN, very fine o.g. (left pair unmounted). A unique and wonderful multiple of the highest importance, from the original find of five such pairs made at Paphos in Dec 1937 and acquired by C.G. Constantinides, the sixth (right-hand) pair in the row having been severed and used as singles. [Of the three other unused pairs preserved from columns 3 to 5 of that sheet, only two now survive in fine condition (the third having been tragically ruined), one of which (Spink "Aphrodite" sale (Feb 24 2009), lot 301, ex Richardson 410) realised £25,200 at auction ten years ago.] Truly a star item of Cyprus KGV philately.
