I.F.S. SIRMOOR 1896 SG85/98b var Official 2a carmine (V) with very distinctive UNLISTED handstamped opt, unused

Stock Code: P234005123

Official. 1896 (c.) 2a carmine (V - from transfer type 2), with a very distinctive (but UNLISTED) handstamped overprint, comprising a small "On" (the "O" inverted, and related to some variants of Type 19) in combination with a tiny "S" x3 , fine unused. Rare, and guaranteed to be authentic. [Four different variants of type 19 were recognised by Carrick and his predecessors, but this is more like a hybrid of types 19 and 21, and arguably deserves separate listing. Its status cannot reasonably be distinguished from the accepted types 19 to 24, some of which only survive in unused condition. It is known that handstamps were often applied to loose or damaged stamps, as an economy measure.]
