SOUTH AUSTRALIA 1886 SG195/208 Proof

Stock Code: P189013501

1886 (Mar) De La Rue undenominated "POSTAGE & REVENUE" plate proof in lilac, imperforate upper right corner block of 8 (4x2) with plate number "1" on gummed unwmkd paper, fresh o.g. (stamps unmounted). Minor wrinkles still spectacular and rare, with the impressions being vastly superior in appearance to any of the stamps subsequently printed in Adelaide. A beautiful proof, and an important introduction to a collection of the 1886-1912 'long' stamps.
