ZANZIBAR 1896 SG26m Mint

Stock Code: P190002214

1896 (15 Aug) "2½" on 2a pale blue, type 1 opt on India, small second "z", with Surcharge type 6 in red, showing "Overprint triple, two albino", with the two albino impressions exceptionally clear and well spaced (respectively 3mm and 4½mm above and progressively to right of the inked opt), and both offset on the gum, large part o.g. with fresh colour. A rare and remarkable stamp. Ex Griffith-Jones and Woolley (Harmer 6/1/1971. lot 779), with detailed BPA cert (1959), embellished by Woolley's autographed comments, which together attempt to explain the phenomenon. A little piece of philatelic history, from a time when such "albinos" were only dimly appreciated, and long before they achieved Part I listing.
