Ceylon 1857-64 ½d reddish lilac on blue glazed paper, imperforate horizontal pair, SG16.
Fine used pair with large margins, neatly cancelled by barred ovals which leave profile virtually clear on right stamp. Left stamp with minor marks on reverse and right stamp with slight crease, but a very scarce and attractive multiple in far above average condition for this delicate stamp.
Provenance: Ex Sir Ernest de Silva (Harmer Jan 1959).
Accompanied with a clear Royal Philatelic Society (RPS) certificate of authenticity (1971) as former SG3.
The Stanley Gibbons catalogue value is £1,400+.
