LEEWARD ISLANDS 1902 SG22s (a) Specimen 2d OCHRE PRINTED DOUBLE
Stock Code: P190008064
1902 Wmk CA 2d dull purple and ochre, opt "SPECIMEN", showing error "OCHRE (duty plate = "LEEWARD ISLANDS" and value) PRINTED DOUBLE", fresh o.g. An extraordinary and very rare item, first discovered in 2013 and still one of only two examples known to us, although a pane of 60 must originally have been printed in error. [At a casual glance the impression of the duty plate looks blurred, but under magnification a perfect (close) double print is clear, although it escaped the notice of the DLR checkers.]. Insignificant rubbing mentioned for accuracy, still very fine, with clear BPA cert (2019). To be listed as SG 22sa in Part I 2020.
