Malaya - Straits Settlements 1906-12 $500 purple and orange overprinted 'SPECIMEN', SG169s.
A very fine, well centred example with exceptional colour and perforations and virtually full original gum. A couple of tiny surface marks, which do not detract from lovely appearance, and exceedingly rare in so fine quality.
A spectacular and sought after high value stamp, which is often spoilt by soling and rubbing.
