New Zealand 1902-07 5d deep brown, watermark 43 sideways (to right from back, and reversed), perforations 11, lower right corner block of 8 (4x2) from R9/10/9-12, SG311a var.

A fine and fresh unmounted mint positional block of eight with full original gum. Couple of minor blemishes (R9/9 with nick at top, R9/12 with small bend), but showing a very prominent plate scratch (through the "Ruapehu" vignette) on R10/10.

Lovely appearance and a very scarce and desirable positional multiple.

A beautiful philatelic display piece of one of the most attractive of the early New Zealand pictorial issues depicting Otira Gorge (with an inset view of Mount Ruapehu, one of the world's most active volcanoes).

New Zealand Campbell Paterson catalogue value is $1,950+ (approx £1,000) as six fine unmounted examples.
