ZANZIBAR 1927 SGD4 Cover

Stock Code: P167006026

Postage Due. 1927 (NO 3) unpaid local cover, Gujrati address, showing on face superb strikes of "T in circle" tax mark and "ZANZIBAR" squared circle, with the double 3c deficiency paid by 1926-30 6c black/orange, an exceptionally fresh example from R2/1 on the sheet. The (green) cover with light fold and roughly opened at top, but superb appearance. The 6c due uncancelled as usual (until mid-1929) and like all known examples of this very rare stamp, of which just 12 are recorded (including five on covers and one defective on postcard), with this perhaps the finest. Ex Griffith-Jones (illustrated on p.291 of his book as fig. 11.10; census F.10).
