NEW ZEALAND 1873 SG138a Mint 2d vermilion no watermark perf 12½ retouched

Stock Code: P190015610

1873 2d vermilion, no wmk, perf 12½, lower marginal block of 14 (7x2) with centre guide (R19-20/3-9), showing all but three stamps retouched, o.g. (lower row unmounted). Minor perf toning (mostly on reverse), nevertheless in a remarkable state of preservation for such a multiple. A rare and splendid positional piece of great technical interest, the retouched positions giving the appearance of being under-inked. Ex Joseph Hackmey (Spink Shreves 19 Feb 2009, lot 1509) and Maurice Burrus (RL 23 Jul 1963, lot 309). (cat £3840++)
