Great Britain Queen Victoria Surface Printed 1880 2s brown, plate 1, SG121a.
Very fine and fresh example of this great rarity unused and with full original gum. Imperforate example lettered PJ. A beautiful and rare stamp
The normal 2 shilling brown stamp issued in 1880 included perforations and is a key rarity of British philately. This rarer imperforate variety is all but unobtainable in the market. It is the first time I have handled one.
It is the best quality example I know of with fresh colour, unused and with all the original gum in-tact. Quite remarkable!
Accompanied with a Brandon certificate of authenticity.
It also enjoys distinguished provenance, once residing in the collection of the famous and charismatic Scottish collector, Dr Douglas Latto.
SG catalogue price is £30,000.
