Nevis 1879-80 2½d red-brown, watermark CC, two examples, respectively hand stamped 'SPECIMEN' (type D11) and 'CANCELLED' (type D7), SG24.

The 'SPECIMEN' example is a fine and fresh mint example with large part original gum. The 'CANCELLED' example is without gum, although fine and fresh. Some slight perforation faults.

Minor condition issues are fairly academic as it is such an important and desirable pair. The 'SPECIMEN' example is unique and the 'CANCELLED' example is one of only two recorded examples.

Provenance: Ex De La Rue archives.
