INDIA 1876 SG80, 82 Specimen 6a and 12a (x2) "CANCELLED" (Samuel type 9)

Stock Code: P223005113

1876 6a olive-bistre and 12a Venetian red (x2) with DLR "CANCELLED" opt (Samuel type 9 - 17.25x1.75mm), fresh large part o.g. or without gum (one 12a). A rare and very interesting trio, with the two 12a exhibiting opts of a different character. ["Type 9" was used for colour standards over a long period, c.1856-92, but there seem to be two or more variants. Samuel describes it as typeset, but the majority of examples, like this 6a and the 12a without gum, are actually handstamped. The 12a with gum, by contrast, is typeset, with an opt fractionally longer and taller than the others, the "A" being more open.]
