TONGA 1962 SG120/7 Mint

Stock Code: P167004044

1962 (7 Feb) "Emancipation" set of 8 to 5s, in folded sheets of 60 (5x12) or upper and lower half sheets of 30 (6x5) of the vertical format 1s and 2s on 3d as originally overprinted and issued, unmounted o.g. The sheets of 60 with "overprint imprint" at foot only (the upper halves having been overprinted separately with an adjusted setting), whereas the half-sheets of 30 each have imprint at top/bottom as appropriate. The 5s sheet sadly with slight faults (separation between the two halves, lacking left margin and part of top margin, about a dozen stamps with gum toning), otherwise very fine, with examples of the 2s on 3d "no fraction bar" at R3/3 on both half-sheets. A fascinating lot, involving a total of eight sub-settings, with four in horizontal 5x6 format (the two 4d settings different from those used for the other values) and four 6 x 5 (two each for the 1s and 2s on 3d). Accompanied by an original copy of the "TONGAN GOVERNMENT GAZETTE" announcing the issue. (cat £443+).
