INDIA 1882 SG93, 98, 100 Specimen 3a, 8a,12a Samuel type 8

Stock Code: P223005116

1882-90 3a orange, 8a dull mauve, 12a purple/red, each with small DLR sans-serif "SPECIMEN" opt (Samuel type 8 - 14x2mm), part o.g. A rare type of opt, which saw only sporadic use c.1856-87, recorded by Samuel on only these three values of the 1882-90 set. [Other stamps known with this opt include the unissued 1856-64 2a green (imperf, as SG 50a), and the Telegraph 1869-78 (?) and 1890-91 sets to 50r, so Samuel's slight reservations as to its status are without justification. The Domingo collection included the 1882-90 1a to 1r with this opt, ex Ulrich.]
