Nauru 1916-23 2d orange, die I, block of 4 from lower right corner of an upper right pane, variety watermark inverted and reversed, SG4y.

A very fine unmounted mint positional block of four with full original gum. Trivial handling bends, immaterial to overall quality.

A very scarce and attractive piece in this positional form. Only two sheets originally existed.

Nauru was occupied by Australian forces following the outbreak of World War I. During this time, Australian stamps overprinted 'North West Pacific Islands' were used from 1914 to 1916. The British government took control of the island and British stamps were then overprinted 'NAURU' and were first issued in October 1916.
