SOUTH AFRICA 1930 SGO12/a/b/var Official

Stock Code: P189017537

Official. 1930-47 "Set 6" (= 1931 issue) ½d black and green roto, "SUIDAFRIKA" one word, SG type O2 opt with erratic 9½-12½mm spacing, block of 132 (12x11) being rows 10-20 of a sheet with full margins showing left, right and bottom "arrows", cyclometer number "2171", and a host of opt varieties, including "Stop after OFFISIEEL on English stamp" at R19/10 and 12, and "Stop after OFFISIEEL on Afrikaans stamp" at R15/3 and 11, and R18/12, and many others of equal technical interest, fresh o.g. (most stamps unmounted). Some separation (between the top two rows, and columns 6 and 7), but very fine appearance and an absolutely fascinating item, preserving the complete 12x10 setting with extra row at top (R10) matching the bottom row (R20). Now rare in this form, with the discussion and chart of varieties in Hisey & Matheson pp.22-25 totally superseding the UHB listing. [This was the final modified state ("S-C4") of the old 12x10 setting with the five "Stop" varieties, used only for this value, and now incorporating "repeat" varieties (H&M v11-13) on adjacent positions, which await final explanation.] Ex Matheson, and illustrated (columns 1-10 only) on Hisey & Matheson p.24. [Union Handbook O20, v1-7 etc]
