INDIA 1865 SG57, 59, 62 Specimen 8p mauve, 1a brown, 2a orange "CANCELLED" (Samuel type 13)

Stock Code: P223005106

1865 8p mauve, 1a deep brown and 2a orange, wmk Elephant's head, with DLR typeset "CANCELLED" opt (Samuel type 13 - 15.5x2.5mm), brilliant large part o.g. A very rare type of opt, which saw only occasional use for "colour standard" examples c.1865-82, these being the only three values recorded from the 1865 set (although Samuel mistakenly listed the 2a as "brown-orange"). Likely to be a unique trio, and in exceptional condition. [This opt also exists on three "no wmk" values, the 1866-78 new types and values, and the 1882 (-90) 1a6p and 3a. All are rarities.]
