ZANZIBAR 1895 SG16j Used

Stock Code: P189017946

1895-96 12a purple/red, type 1 opt on India, error "Zanzidar" (with small second "z" down and normal "d"), from Setting 1 (= Hall "D"). R4/6 (first state), very fine used appearance with "17 JA 96" cds which leaves error entirely clear. Faint bend at top, mentioned for accuracy, does not detract from this most desirable example. Very rare, being one of only six used examples of the error recorded in private hands. Ex Griffith-Jones and Sotheby 21/7/1995, lot 748, with Holcombe (1989) and BPA (2018) certs. (cat £4500)
