1916-23 2s6d (pale) sepia-brown, De La Rue printing, showing 'overprint treble, two albino', with the abino impressions respectively 3½mm to left/2½mm above, and 16mm to left/2mm above, in relation to the inked opt, fine o.g. An extraordinary stamp, from R4/3 of the one 2s6d complete sheet received in Nauru prior to 2 Sept 1916, which showed 'double overprint one albino' on rows 1-3 and 'treble overprint one abino' on rows 4-5, having apparently been overprinted (? as a trial) with a setting of 4 in a single row. This sheet remained intact (finally in the possession of Sir John Dodd) until broken up in the 1960s, as explained by Buckingham (see pp. 68-9 and 110-11 of his book). Ex Buckingham (Grosvenor 28/2/2006, lot 895), with BPA cert (1968) as former SG 19a ('deep brown'), and illustrated on p.82 of Buckingham's book.
