MOROCCO AGENCIES 1898(-1900) SG3/a/b var Mint
Stock Code: P178006648
1898(-1900) 20c olive-green and brown, type 1 opt from first lithographed setting, reconstructed block of 79 (12x6, with an extra block of 4, pair and single at top), being the bottom six rows of a two-pane sheet with full margins showing plate number "2" (x2), large part o.g. to o.g. The overprint, which includes the varieties "Inverted V for A" (right pane R6/6) and "Long tail to s" (right pane R8/2), SPECTACULARLY MISPLACED TO RIGHT (and slightly diagonal), so that the left column of each pane shows partial overprints while the other columns show divided overprints, which extend into the interpane margin and right sheet margin. Slight faults (some separation, creases and mostly unobtrusive stains), nevertheless an amazing survival, being the greater part of the sole sheet likely to have been affected, with the two constant varieties necessarily unique. An exhibition piece. (cat £2021++ as normals).
