Stock Code: P212021665

1897 2½d on 1s dull lilac, type 10 surcharge, unused. Rather washed colour as often (supposedly as a result of a proportion of the stock having been immersed in sea-water), otherwise sound and of good appearance. A collectable example of this very scarce type, which occurred only twice in the 10x3 setting. Just 142 existed. (cat £950 as fine).
