ZANZIBAR 1895 SG10k Mint 3a error Zanizbar
Stock Code: P190000843
1895-96 3a brown-orange, type 1 opt on India, ERROR "Zanizbar", from Setting 1, R1/9, fresh part to large part o.g. Slight diagonal crease does not affect very fine appearance. A great and extraordinary rarity, being one of only three unused examples recorded in private hands (plus one in the Royal Collection). This short-lived error was confined to a small Nov 1895 printing of the 1a6p and 3a values only, with the former apparently all receiving the type 2 surcharge (= SG 22). Ex Griffith-Jones, with Brandon cert (1998). (cat £6500).
