ZANZIBAR 1896 SG24D var Mint

Stock Code: P190007527

1896 (11 May) "2½" on 1a plum, type 4 surcharge in black, with small second "z" in "Zanzibar", from the original surcharge setting (Griffith-Jones "2") with fraction only 5mm high, fine o.g. with very fresh colour. A rarity in unused condition, as the vast majority of this first printing was used, and most unused examples of SG 23/5 actually come from a second printing in Oct-Nov 1896, showing fraction 5¾mm high. Sismondo cert (2017) as normal SG 24, prior to the publication of the Griffith-Jones research findings.
