South Africa Mafeking 1900 6d on 2d green and carmine, SG8


South Africa Mafeking 1900 6d on 2d green and carmine, SG8



South Africa Cape of Good Hope - Mafeking Siege Stamps, 23 March 1900 to 17 May 1900. 

1900 6d on 2d green and carmine, type 1 (seriffed) surcharge "Mafeking 6d Bechuanaland Protectorate Besieged", position 4 of the setting, SG8,

A fine quality example of this stamp of historical significance with large part original gum. This stamp is particularly rare in unused condition, and this one is much above average condition making it an important rarity.

There are many forgeries of the Mafeking overprints, many of which were brought home by soldiers returning from the Boer War.

To provide complete peace of mind in this respect, this stamp is accompanied with an independent certificate of authenticity from the British Philatelic Association (2015).

The Stanley Gibbons catalogue value for this stamp is £3,000.
