VICTORIA (AUS) 1867 SG139a Used

Stock Code: P189010555

1867-81 5s blue/yellow, variety wmk REVERSED, well-centred and neatly cancelled by "VICTORIA" barred oval (from Melbourne duplex). A really fine example of this rare and technically interesting stamp, deliberately printed on the wrong side of the paper, and for many years the only "reversed wmk" variety (from any country !) to achieve Part I listing. RPS cert (1968) as former SG 162a, mentioning the variety. [This example was sold by Stanley Gibbons Ltd in 1994, and we do not recall handling another in the past 24 years.]
