Description

Dominica 1938-47 2s slate and purple and 10s black and brown-orange (issued 15/10/47), perforated "SPECIMEN" (type W9), matching lower marginal example with "Waterlow & Sons Limited" imprint, SG106as/8as.

A fine quality pair, unmounted mint with full original gum. Lightly toned gum and 2s with a few short perforations, although still of fresh appearance.

The 2s stamp depicts Layou River and the 10s Boiling Lake.

A remarkable and very rare pair in this positional form, with only six examples of each possible and a low survival rate.

"SPECIMEN" examples were used solely by postal administrations for reference purposes to help spot any attempted forgeries.
