Description

Malaya - Selangor 1935-41 8c scarlet on thin striated paper, prepared for use but not issued in this colour, SG75var.

A brilliant quality unmounted mint example with full original gum.

Supplies of this unissued 8c scarlet stamp on thin striated paper were diverted to Australia in 1941. The few examples which were circulated result from unintended leakages of this supply.

The stamp features the Mosque at Palace, Klang which is Selangor's Royal Mosque.

A superb example of this elusive and beautiful stamp rarity, of which one sheet was discovered in Australia long after the Second World War.

Refer to footnote in Stanley Gibbons Commonwealth & British Stamps catalogue after SG85.
