Falkland Islands 1933 Centenary 5s black and yellow-orange "King Penguin", SG136a.
The distinctive shade from the small second printing of only 1,320 stamps, which was mostly destroyed in 1934.
The stamp features the Gentoo Penguin, the most famous bird of the Falkland Islands. Gentoo Penguins nest in colonies adjacent to sandy or shingle beaches at over 80 locations around the Falkland Islands. Its adorability has led it to become an emblem of the Islands.
A brilliant and exceptional quality example with original gum of this sought-after stamp, beautifully fresh.
