MAURITIUS 1872 SG58/70 Proof

Stock Code: P189013157

1872(c) 1d bistre, 2d bright blue, 4d rose, 6d blue-green, 10d maroon, 1s orange, the "set" of six values, imperforate plate proofs on thick glazed wove with type D7 "CANCELLED" opt, horizontal strips of 6 from the top (10d, 1s) or bottom of a right pane with full margins, all but the 10d with "POSTAGE (Value)" imprint. Minor surface marks and traces of toning on reverse, but a beautiful and desirable series of positional pieces. Highly attractive rare in this form. Only one sheet of each value existed. [N.B. The 3d, 9d and 5s values never existed in this form. The absence of the imprint from the 10d block reflects the later manufacture of the plate for that value.]
