Telegraphs. 1860 (Jan) "ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH" 4a reddish purple on blue glazed, IMPERFORATE VERTICAL PAIR from the imprimatur sheet with mostly huge margins (close at top left), showing traces of two adjoining stamps at right. Insignificant diagonal bend at upper left, still a spectacular item with lovely colour, and of the highest importance and rarity. Ex Desai and Sturton. Only one other pair (ex "Koh-i-Nor", with faults, sold by SG in 2014) has been recorded from the imprimatur sheet (plus five singles, two of which are in the Royal Collection), and these are the only extant multiples from the entire Electric Telegraph issue (whether imperf, perf or "SPECIMEN").
