Great Britain 1902 10s Ultramarine (I.R. Official) - 29.4.02, SG O26.

A very fine and fresh original gum example of this rare departmental issue and one of the key rarities of GB philately.

Perforations at top are slightly trimmed and a couple of light gum wrinkles. Nevertheless, a magnificent GB rarity with superb colour.

These stamps were used by revenue officials in the provinces, mail to and from Head Office passing without a stamp. The London Office used these stamps only for foreign mail.

Only the 2nd time in 20 years we have  handled this extremely elusive departmental official.

Accompanied with a 2002 British Philatelic Association Certificate of Authenticity.

Provenance: Ex Minoru.
