Stock Code: P10112315
1892 (Oct) 2½d on 3d ultramarine, type 8 surcharge, the complete sheet of 240 (separated into four panes of 60, each 6x10) formerly in the collection of Mr. J. Schoeman, whcih demonstrated that the first setting was indeed of 240, rather than 120 as believed by Buckley and Marriott in the 1966 Handbook. Overall good to fine condition, with fresh colour and part o.g. to o.g., but with some creases, separation and missing pieces of selvedge, and with one block of four missing (but replaced) from the lower right pane. The major variety 'Printer's quad after surcharge' (= SG 61a) and a host of constant smaller varieties are present, all written up on four exhibition pages. A unique and fascinating assembly for the specialist (cat £4626+).
