IRAQ BRIT OCC 1918 SG14var Mint
Stock Code: P190006164
1918-21 10r on 100pi indigo, lower marginal vertical pair with part Arabic 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, fresh unmounted 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. Odd short perfs mentioned for accuracy, still very fine. An important and desirable positional multiple.
