MADAGASCAR (BRITISH) 1884 SG1var Used
Stock Code: P190006667
1884 6d (½oz) magenta "LETTER", showing hollow stop after "B", "VICE-CONSULATE" h/s in black SIDEWAYS, used with blue crayon "X" (or "4" ?) and red crayon stroke. A little reduced at right, otherwise very fine and fresh, and remarkably still with corner gumming intact, which suggests usage for accounting purposes (rather than on a letter). A rare and most interesting example with the dual cancel, and unusual with sideways handstamp. (cat £475+).
