Stock Code: P189011083

1914-15 New Guinea 2d on 20pf ultramarine, 6mm space from setting I, pos.10, showing error SURCHARGE DOUBLE (with the upper impression of "G.R.I." (partly) albino) and additionally with the pos.10 variety "1" for "I", fine large part o.g. A unique and fascinating stamp with this combination of error and variety, and accorded separate listing as such in Gibbs "G.R.I" as no. 4ba. Ex Marquess of Bute (RL 29 April 1959, lot 18), Creed and Corinphila 6 June 2002, lot 545. Initialled by David Field, with Bute and Buhler handstamps, and Gibbs cert (2002). [N.B. On other recorded examples from the same row the upper "G.R.I." is completely albino (= SG 4e), rather than partly inked as here. A possible explanation is that the top sheet margin was inadvertently folded forward during surcharging, and so received the upper line on the gum.]
