SIERRA LEONE 1897 SG63, 66/b Mint

Stock Code: P212021648

1897 2½d on 1s dull lilac, upper left corner block of six (2x3) with plate number "1", R1-3/1-2 of the setting, showing types 8 (x4), 11 (at R3/2) and 13 (at R2/2) se-tenant, unused. Rather washed colour as often (supposedly as a result of a proportion of the stock having been immersed in sea-water), otherwise fine and of very good appearance. A rare and most interesting positional multiple, with only 35½ sheets surcharged, yielding 1562 of type 8, 284 of type 11, and just 71 of type 13. Also shows reversed albino impressions of the surcharge in the left margin, which was folded back before surcharging. (cat £2880+).
