No Longer Available - TRINIDAD 1894 SGO1/5 Official

Stock Code: P178006408

Official. 1894 short set of 5 to 6d, type O1 "O S" opt, in VERTICAL STRIPS OF FIVE, brilliant unmounted o.g. with lovely fresh colours. Odd gum wrinkles and shortish perfs mentioned for accuracy and top 1d with diagonal crease, but an outstanding and important group of multiples, which are almost certainly intact strips from the UPU distribution. Very rare as such and probably the largest surviving multiples from this issue, with blocks apparently unknown and only vertical strips of 4 recorded by Marriott, Medlicott and Ramkissoon in the BWISC handbook. [It seems possible that the UPU distribution was the main, if not only, source for unused examples of this little known issue, which may not have been available to the public.]
