1855-63 6d (pale) rose-lilac, intermediate shade, large to very large margins, used with part triangular cancel (which leaves "Hope" virtually clear) and trace of red cancel. An impressively large example with strong colour.
1938 "CHAMBA STATE" set of 18 to 25r, part to large part original gum. A little heavily hinged in places, with a couple of imperfections (6a thin spot, 10r tiny inclusion). Still an attractive set with very fresh colours and white gum. Scarce.
CEYLON 1859 SG12 2s dull blue. Superb four margin example of this scarce stamp. Accompanied by a British Philatelic Association certificate of authenticity. The Stanley Gibbons catalogue price is £1,300.
