Bechuanaland 1913-24 original set of 8 to 1s (lacking later 1½d), watermark Simple Cypher, overprinted 'SPECIMEN' (type GB23), blocks of 4 (marginal except for ½d, 2d), SG73/82s.

Very fine and fresh set, unmounted mint with full original gum.

A rare set, the ½d to 6d not distributed by the (Universal Postal Union) UPU, with less than a single pane (120 stamps) of each value released by the British Philatelic Museum Archives (BPMA.)

Although the 1s value was distributed by the UPU with the same 'SPECIMEN' overprint, no blocks could exist from that source.
