Description

British Levant 1916 ½d green, type S1 'Salonica' overprint, block of 4, SGS1.

Brilliant and fresh quality unmounted mint, with full original gum.

Only 1,352 were sold of this issue and very scarce in this exceptional condition and as a block of four.

Accompanied with a Royal Philatelic Society (RPS) certificate of authenticity (2010).

The term British Levant has been adopted by stamp collectors to describe the stamp issues from various British Post Offices within the former Turkish Empire.

These overprints of British stamps were originally prepared for use by a civilian post office to be set up on Mouth Athos, Northern Greece. When the project was abandoned, they were placed on sale at the Army Field office in Salonica.
