TOGO 1914 SGH11a Used

TOGO 1914 SGH11a Used
1914 (17 Sept) 2m blue, type 1 opt with lines 3mm apart, the remarkable variety with 'Occupation' double, very fine used with large part 'LOME/TOGOGEBIET' cds, dated '7 11 (14)'. On one sheet the overprint was misplaced downwards, so that the word 'Occupation' fell between the stamps and was no longer legible. The printer therefore overprinted the sheet again, with a second impression of 'Occupation' only, above 'TOGO'. Twenty examples originally existed, but only seven unused and eight used examples have been recorded by Gibbs. Ex Marquess of Bute, with detailed Holcombe cert (1992). One of the great First World War rarities.
