UGANDA 1895 SG17 Mint

UGANDA 1895 SG17 Mint
1895 (April) typewritten 5(c) black, wide letters, narrow stamp, with interpane margin at foot showing the complete world 'shells' (denoting the currency of cowrie shells), unused. Roughly separated at sides, but with complete border at top and traces at left, and with minor creasing in the margin, nevertheless an exceptional example. A rarity in unused condition and very desirable with this marginal inscription. The word 'shells' did not appear in the marginal inscriptions of the later 1895-96 typewritten issues, and we have never previously handled such a stamp. (cat £3250+)
