Stock Code: P190000844
1895-96 ½a blue-green, type 1 opt on India, horizontal pair from Setting 3 (July 1896 printing) R7/1-2, the left stamp with small second "z" and "ibar raised", the right stamp ERROR "Zanibar", neatly cancelled by individual strikes of "REG" cds, dated "27 JL 96", leaving overprints clear. Unobtrusive surface marks barely detract from fine appearance. A very rare error in used condition, being one of just four examples recorded, with only one other pair known to us. Ex Griffith-Jones and Gartner (Glenferrie July 1993, lot 22), with BPA cert (2018). (cat £1700).
