GB 1911 SG327var Mint

Stock Code: P14511725

1911 1d Carmine (Perf.14). Very fine unused o.g. example of this rare and controversial stamp. The original source find emanates from a block of four that was found and subsequently illustrated in the "British Philatelist" in June 1915. Although reported at the time as having been issued from the Post Office it is almost certainly of proof status and was originally listed by SG as No. 327a (Spec. N7e), however in 1993 they were erroneously stated to be fakes and removed from the catalogue. Subsequent research has proven this to be incorrect and the stamp will again be given a full catalogue listing in the next specialised Vol.2. From the original block of four one now resides in the Royal Philatelic Collection leaving only three examples available to collectors, this being the lower right hand stamp from the original block. Ex Ferrary (1925) and Chartwell. 1964 BPA Cert.
