Stock Code: P190015313

1896 (15 Aug) '2½' (type 7) on 2a pale blue, variety inverted '1' in '½' from R5/6 of setting, fresh o.g. Typical centring and trivial perf creasing at right, still fine and very rare. Ex Dale-Lichtenstein, with clear Holcombe cert (1991). [N.B. 32 panes of 60 were surcharged, but less than half a dozen examples of the variety have been recorded by us. It would appear to have been present during only part of the printing, like the '2' omitted errors.]
