LABUAN 1902 SG128 Proof

Stock Code: P201005948

1902-03 'Crown' $1, printer's sample in black and chestnut, complete imperforate sheet of 9 (from a special plate) on thick wove with wide margins, showing part (reversed) die number '3816' at upper right. Each unit with small security puncture, but with diagonal 'WATERLOW & SONS LTD./SPECIMEN' opt (type WS1) exceptionally on seven units only, R2/2-3 being WITHOUT OVERPRINT. This was the only such special sample plate produced for Labuan, and any example (always imperforate - not known perforated) is a rarity, but surely unique in the state seen here, with the otherwise invariable Waterlow opt missing from two units. An important and wonderful item.
