Falkland Islands Dependencies 1946 Victory 1d deep violet and 3d blue, perforated 'SPECIMEN' (type D21), SG17s/18s.

Brilliant mint quality with original gum. A few slightly short perforations, which is often seen, still a very fine pair and well above average.

One of the scarcest of the Commonwealth Victory stamp issues.

The Victory stamps were issued in 1946 to celebrate the return to peace at the end of World War II. The designs feature a view of the Thames River in London, with a view of the Parliament buildings in the distance.

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

The Stanley Gibbons catalogue value is £375.
