Australia British Commonwealth Occupation Force 1946-48 1s grey-green, upper right corner block of 4, upper right stamp (= right pane, R1/8) showing variety 'Narrow N', SGJ5/c.

A very fine unmounted mint positional block with full original gum, (hinged in margin only).

These stamps were used by the Australian forces occupying Japan after the Second World War. Initially their post offices supplied unoverprinted Australian stamps, but it was decided to introduce the overprinted issue to prevent currency speculation.

Very scarce positional block with printing variety.
