South Africa Cape of Good Hope, Vryburg 1900 (16 May) British Reoccupation 1d rose-red and green Transvaal with type 2 'V.R./SPECIAL/POST' handstamp READING DOWNWARDS, tied to piece by light complete and part strikes of 'VRYBURG/B.B.' circular date stamp dated 'MY 16 19', SG12var.

The best quality example I have ever seen and the minor soiling can be forgiven because it is such a rare stamp, hardly ever seen on the market.

Only 60 issued of the basic stamp (mostly with handstamp reading upwards). Quite probably the once in our lifetime we will have the privilege of handling this great rarity.

These Provisionals were issued by the Military Authorities as stamps of Transvaal hand stamped "V.R. SPECIAL POST".

Provenance: Ex Rosenburg.

The Stanley Gibbons catalogue value is £6,000+.
