TANGANYIKA 1915 SGM35var Used

Stock Code: P223000399

1915 (Nov)-16 1a aniline carmine, type M4 "MAFIA" H/S in violet, the very rare (and generally unrecognised !) early type of the H/S with the "G" over the "P" of "POST" and a clear STOP after the "R". A fascinating and desirable stamp (traces of envelope adhesion on reverse as to be expected), from early in the pre-July 1916 period, when type M4 was used as combined overprint and postmark. [Study of the few dated examples seen indicates that the later normal type (with "G" offset to left of the "P" and "no stop after R") was already in use by Feb 1916. A further distinction is provided by the spacing between the "G." and "R" which is 4½mm in the later type, but barely 4mm in the early type, which we have never previously offered for sale].
