ZULULAND 1894 SG29(a) Mint

Stock Code: P190009103

1894-96 £5 purple and black/red, showing the remarkable ERROR "BLACK (ZULULAND and £5) DOUBLY PRINTED" (the so-called "Thick duty plate"), fresh o.g. with rich colour and barest trace of hingeing (if at all). Trivial rubbing of the frame as nearly always, still very fine and one of perhaps half a dozen unused examples surviving from the one pane of 60 that existed, most of which will have been used for fiscal purposes. With clear RPS (1978) and BPA (2012) certs as SG 29, not mentioning the error. [The authenticity of examples with the "Thick duty plate" was recently called into question in articles by Clive Sergay & Peter Whitmore (see FFE 17, 2014, pp. 113-123), but the controversy has been resolved in an article by Philip Kinns (GSM Sept 2019). The error will now be listed as SG 29a in Part I 2020.]
