INDIA 1860 SG52 Specimen 8p purple "CANCELLED" (Samuel type 13)

Stock Code: P223005104

1860 8p purple/white, no wmk, with DLR typeset "CANCELLED" opt (Samuel type 13 - 15.5x2.5mm), fine part o.g. (trivial corner bend). A very rare type of opt, which saw only occasional use for "colour standard" examples c.1865-82. [Prior to the 1865 wmkd issue, Samuel recorded type 13 only on this stamp and the 1856-64 4a black. We recently sold a previously unknown 1856-64 2a orange with the same opt, which was probably unique. Otherwise, in the past 20 years we have not handled any type 13 except on the 1882 1a6p and 3a.]
