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.
