MALTA 1863 SG17 Used

Stock Code: P190014806

1863-81 ½d yellow, wmk CC, perf 14x12½, from Jan 1879 21st printing, well-centred HORIZONTAL PAIR, lightly cancelled by large part (second type) code "B" duplex, dated "JU 11 84". Couple of faintly toned perfs and an insignificant corner crease mentioned for accuracy, still a most attractive and rare multiple, showing exceptionally late usage. One of only 15 recorded pairs of SG 16 or 17, with no other known usage of the Perf 14x12½ stamps after Jan 1882. Ex R.C.B. Smith (no. 101900), Warwick and Warwick 6/5/1981 lot 71, and almost certainly ex Damsell (RL 16/11/1955, lot 203 part = Smith 101910, not specified as a pair but with ref to 1884 "freak use").
