British Guiana 1865 Waterlow reprints of the 1853 1c vermilion and 1853-55 4c pale blue, from fresh transfers (five varieties) from the original dies, in COMPLETE SHEETS OF 100 (10x10) with 'Waterlow and Sons London' imprint below R10/5-6, perforations 12½, SG1120.

Very fine mint entire sheets with original gum with the vast majority of stamps being unmounted mint. Toned gum and some inevitable minor imperfections typical of sheets of this nature (R1/5 and R10/5 on each sheet with an unobtrusive pinhole), nevertheless in a remarkable state of preservation.

Very rare in sheets, being the first we have ever handled and a real privilege.

See footnote in Stanley Gibbons British Commonwealth & Empire catalogue Part I after SG 20.

The Stanley Gibbons catalogue value is £4,200++.
