Stock Code: P212002669

Official. 1935-49 "Set 23" (= 1949-50 issue) 1s "deep brown and dark violet-blue", SG type O2 opt (OFFICIAL at right) with 20mm spacing, final unscreened printing, lower right corner vertical pair from R19-20/6 of a sheet, showing spectacular leftward misplacement of opt, leaving both stamps with "OFFICIAL" only, very fine o.g. (trivial marginal blemishes). A famous error, of which only five vertical pairs are considered to have survived (from sheet number "8020"), with horizontal pairs unknown, and unique in this positional form. Ex Matheson, and illustrated on Hisey & Matheson p.113. [Union Handbook O123 V2]
