St Lucia 1921-30 set of 15 to 5s, overprinted 'SPECIMEN', script watermark, SG91s/105s.
A fine quality King George V mint set with original gum. A few imperfections (1d deep brown shows some toning and gum thin, 1½d has a corner bend and the 2d and 2s6d with disturbed gum). Despite such minor imperfections, overall, it remains a fine mint set with fresh colours.
The 2½d dull blue stamp, interestingly, shows misplaced overprint.
This is a difficult set to assemble as it was distributed in several parts.
These "SPECIMEN" examples were used solely by postal administrations for reference purposes to help spot any attempted forgeries.
The Stanley Gibbons catalogue value is £325.
