1896 1d Lilac (O.W. Official). Very fine unused o.g. left horizontal block of 36 (R.1/1-R.3/12) overprinted "SPECIMEN" type 16. Eight stamps thinned from being affixed in an archive and some negligible gum wrinkling as to be expected on such a piece, also contains the following varieties, six examples of the 'Large stop after O' in columns 3 and 9, bent W on R.2/4 and distorted W on R.3/6. An impressive multiple and almost certainly the largest surviving in private hands. Cat. £11,700. Ex Michael Astley collection.
