New Zealand 1899-1903 2s blue-green, Waterlow plate proof from the "colonial" plate, imperforate block of 4 on ungummed wove, no watermark, from R11/12/3-4 on the sheet and showing the R12/3 re-entry (at lower right corner), SG269.

A very fine mint block. Traces of toning at foot (and R12/4 with a tiny natural paper flaw), but remains still very fine.

Probably a unique block with the re-entry (Campbell Paterson New Zealand Specialised Catalogue No: EV20e).

Provenance: Ex Michael Burberry, the recognised authority on varieties of the New Zealand pictorial stamps.

Stanley Gibbons catalogue value: £640+.

One of the most attractive designs from what was the first pictorial series from a major British colony. The design of Milford Sound is home to some of the most impressive waterfalls on Earth.
