Basutoland 1961-63 ½c grey-black and sepia, lower marginal IMPERFORATE vertical pair WITH FRAME INVERTED AND VIGNETTE MISPLACED UPWARDS RESULTING IN ALMOST COMPLETE OMISSION ON BOTTOM STAMP, SG69a var.
A fine mint pair with large part original gum. Usual minor wrinkles, which do not detract from overall quality.
A rarity as only one sheet (= 30 pairs) are believed to have existed with just the bottom row (= 6 pairs) showing vignette omitted. It is a stamp of unissued for postage status and a spectacular rarity.
Note, the frame is inverted in relation to the watermark and vignette.
Basutoland, located in South Eastern Africa, gained independence in 1966 and is now called the Kingdom of Lesotho.
