MALAYA - STRAITS 1892-94 SG94/a Mint

Stock Code: P167006308

1892-94 "THREE CENTS" on 32c carmine-rose, the celebrated L-shaped "block" of 3 with the upper stamp (R10/3, upper left pane) showing ERROR SURCHARGE OMITTED, with normal horizontal pair (R1/3-4 from lower left pane) below, separated by interpane margin (creased as always), fresh and fine o.g. (error unmounted) Unique in this spectacular se-tenant format, with just four interpane pairs now possible in private hands (and a fifth in the Royal Collection). Truly one of the great pieces of Straits Settlements philately, with an impressive pedigree. Ex Sentosa (Spink Singapore 16/8/2015, lot 260), Springbett, "Asch", Charles Taylor and Dr F.E. Wood. [N.B. The format of this block proves conclusively that, while six pairs originally existed, only five can now survive as explained by the Part I footnote (see also the illustration on p.36 in Lockhart's 1925 book and his note on p.22). ]
