IRAQ BRIT OCC 1918 SG14var Mint
Stock Code: P190006163
1918-21 10r on 100pi indigo, lower marginal with "10 Rs." surcharge imprint, from the little known SECOND SETTING, with the surcharge corresponding exactly to that used on the 10r on 100pi "Official" (SG O31), but differing significantly from the first setting which is usually found, very fine o.g. The surcharge is only 22mm high (rather than 23mm), but slightly wider (27½mm, rather than 27mm), but the most obvious feature is the relative position of the "10 Rs." value, which is now both higher and well-centred under "IRAQ", where before it had been low and well to the left. An important and desirable positional example.
