ZANZIBAR 1895 SG4l Mint

Stock Code: P190001635

1895-96 1a plum, type 1 opt on India, showing the remarkable variety "Diaeresis over last a" resulting from the erroneous use of a German modified "a" instead of the normal letter, brilliant large part o.g. From R10/5 of a small late printing from Setting 3. Choice quality and excessively rare on this value, being the finer of the two examples now known, and missing from the Royal Philatelic Collection. Ex Griffith-Jones and Richard Knight (Spink March 2003), with BPA cert (2018). [The existence of such a German letter in the "Zanzibar Gazette" printing office reflects the cosmopolitan character of the town, with English, French, German, Arabic and Gujrati all in regular use.]
