FALKLAND ISLANDS 1935 SG142b Used 1s Short extra flagstaff
Stock Code: P190004789
1935 Silver Jubilee 1s slate and purple, upper left corner block of 4 from vignette plate '2', showing variety 'Short extra flagstaff' on R2/1, used with two strikes of type PS2A cds, dated '2 AP 36'. Faintly toned, still fine and very scarce in this form and condition. Total printing of this value 1282 sheets, from eight vignette plates, but this variety can only have occurred within the two last printings in Nov and Dec 1935 (616 sheets, from plates 2 and 4), as it was not present on the plate at the time of the 14/1/35 first printing, while the 2/8/35 printing was from plates 1 and 3.
