Stock Code: P178000198
Postage Due. 1926-30 Typeset issue, the "Griffith-Jones" collection of complete unused sheets of 10 (2x5) being the complete representation of all values and settings available in this form, neatly presented on 15 exhibition pages with full plating notes. [The 6c, 12c and 25c values are necessarily absent, as they do not exist in this form}. Comprises the 18c black/salmon (first printing, narrow margins), the 3c, 9c and 15c to 75c black/orange, each showing error "cent.s" on R4/1, and the 1c, 2c, 3c, 9c and 15c without the error, making a total of 15 sheets, including 10 with the R4/1 error. Odd minor marks and blemishes characteristic of the poor quality paper used for this issue (75c sheet with marginal fault above R1/1), but overall fine to very fine condition. A marvellous opportunity, being the actual examples illustrated and described on pp. 230, 238, 241-8, 250-4 of the book, and a very difficult series to assemble. with the 3c (both settings), 9c and 15c corrected setting, 18c (orange), 50c and 75c especially scarce.
