Stock Code: P201002207

Official. 1929-31 "Set 6" (= 1931 issue) 1s brown and deep blue, recess, SG type O2 opt (18mm space), BLOCK OF TWENTY-FOUR, being the bottom two rows of a sheet WITH TWO GUTTER PAIRS between the left and right panes (each with imprint), fresh o.g. (stamps mostly unmounted). Shows the listed variety (V4) "Stop after OFFICIAL" on both R10/1 and R10/7 (Afrikaans stamps) and also V3 "Dropped OFFICIAL" on both R9/6 and R9/12 (Afrikaans). Creasing in central gutter as to be expected, nevertheless very fine, and a wonderful exhibition showpiece, believed to be unique, with no other interpane pieces recorded. The repetition of the opt varieties proves the use of a 6x10 forme, but not even single gutter pairs were known to exist in 1986 ! Ex Matheson, and referenced on p. 77 of Hisey & Matheson. [Union Handbook O24, V3-4 etc., unlisted]
