Ceylon 1861-64 1d dull blue, watermark large star, rough perforations 14 to 15½, marginal block of 4 from left of sheet, showing re-entry in "CEYLO" on lower right stamp, SG28.
The re-entry is a constant plate variety that shows portions of the design doubled over the other. It occurs in the same position on every sheet printed from the plate on which the re-entry occurs.
A fine quality mint block with large part original gum and brilliant colour. Upper pair with slight buckling (and lower pair with faint bend), but barely detracts from such lovely appearance.
A rare block, particularly with the re-entry and as a marginal block in such fine condition, hardly ever encountered for this issue which are mainly found in poor condition.
Includes a pencil note on reverse indicating provenance ex de Worms.
