Stock Code: P201014518
1895-96 6a pale brown and 12a purple/red, type 1 opt on India with small second "z", each showing the prominent variety "Wide space between z and i", part o.g. The variety first appeared on R1/6 in opt setting 2 (12a) and then moved to R1/8 for the 6a, after the insertion of two columns at left in the sub-setting for this value only (8x10 format), in June 1896. [The two right columns (including this position) were then removed, leading to opt setting 3 in July 1896.] Slight imperfections, still a rare and most interesting pair, the 6a also showing "an" only partly printed, which is believed to be constant on this value only.
