ZANZIBAR 1896 SG25D Mint

Stock Code: P189016403

1896 (11 May) "2½" on 1a plum, type 5 surcharge in black, small second "z" UP with antique "r", fresh large part o.g. From the original surcharge setting with fraction only 5mm high, which has not been fully reconstructed, but plateable by the "Zanzibar" opt (= setting 1, R6/11) to pos R6/5 on the pane. A desirable unused example, as the majority of the original printing was used, and many times rarer than the later printing (? Oct 1896) with 5½mm fraction. [Separate Part I listing of the two printings would be justified.]
