Stock Code: P167003195
Official. 1962 (7 Feb) "Emancipation" 5d violet and 1s red-brown, type O3 opt, matching right marginal blocks of 4, each with two neat strikes of Nukualofa "12 FE 62" cds, showing the diagnostic flaws of R1-2/4-5 of the basic 5x6 setting, with the 1s from a lower half-sheet (R2/5 normal) while the 5d block shows variety "MAII" on R2/5, which only occurred on the upper half-sheets. A very scarce and interesting pair of blocks, with only 40 possible of the 5d "MAII" variety.
