(3.5mm space instead of 1.75mm), while all three stamps show "I" of "Insufficiently" virtually omitted as a result of inadequate "make-ready" or tightening of the forme. Neatly cancelled by two part strikes of type R7 "REG./ZANZIBAR" cds dated "4 OC 33". An important rarity, with only one other example recorded, in pair on a cover dated "2 OC 33".
