New Hebrides French Issue 1910 (June 14) stamp-size essay for the 1911 10c carmine, printed in lake by a semi-photographic process on glazed paper, sunk-mounted in De La Rue card (85x80mm), with M/S date at upper right and bold M/S endorsement 'Duty to be left Blank' below, SGF12.

Some toning in the surround (not affecting the essay), normal because of damp climate, but a very rare and important philatelic item.

Provenance: Ex Ray Baldwin (RL 22/2/1972, lot 336).

The design is basically as adopted, but differs in details, such as the 'NOUVELLES HEBRIDES' label and the value.
