North Borneo 1897 24c type 45 (without "POSTAGE & REVENUE"), die proof in blue-black and red-brown on wove (95x62mm), showing guidelines and part reversed inscriptions in the surround, SG109.

A splendid philatelic rarity. The design is exquisite in its detail and this die proof printed from the master die provides a very high quality example of this very popular Victorian stamp issue.

From 1894, North Borneo was responsible for issuing some of the most attractive and innovative pictorial stamps of the late 19th century.

Provenance: Ex Colonel J.R. Danson Collection.
