ZANZIBAR 1896 SG29j Mint

Stock Code: P189016412

1896 (15 Nov) "2½" on 1a6p sepia, type 6 surcharge, showing variety "Inverted 1 in ½" and exceptionally with SURCHARGE DOUBLE, ONE ALBINO (the two impressions almost coincident, but with the albino impression clearly offset on reverse), fine large part o.g. An excessively rare stamp, previously sold by us in 1993, and possibly unique in this form. Only 16 panes were surcharged. [The overprint has small second "z", but is not readily plateable. The fact that the Royal Collection includes two examples of the "Inverted 1" respectively in a block and strip of 3 se-tenant with SG 31 indicates that the surcharge setting used for SG 29/31 was not identical to that used for SG 26/8.]
