INDIA 1882 SG91 Specimen Samuel type 19 "CANCELLED" opt

Stock Code: P223005114

1882-90 2a pale blue, with small sans-serif "CANCELLED" opt (14.5 x 1.75mm, Samuel type 19), fresh large part o.g. Light creases, nevertheless one of the rarest of all Indian "Specimen" opts, recorded by Samuel only on this one postage stamp, the 1883-99 Official 4a, and four Telegraph values. [Samuel noted "possibly a De La Rue handstamp", and this is confirmed by "The De La Rue Collection" p. 4108, illustrating ten values of the 1882-90 set (exclg the 4a6p) in 3x2 blocks with this opt, and dated "7th April 1887" or "June 1887" (12a). We sold those unique blocks about 10 years ago, but recently we handled another single of this 2a with type 19, which came to us in a large part 1882-90 set otherwise with type 14 "SPECIMEN" handstamps.]
