South Africa Orange Free State 1868-94 6d bright carmine, folded lower half sheet of 120, comprising two panes 6x10 with horizontal gutter, SG6.

A fine unmounted mint sheet with full original gum. Some creasing, marginal faults and separation, with minor gum adhesions, as often seen with sheets of this size. Overall fine condition with fresh colour, showing plate number '1' at lower left and current number '2' at lower right.

The sheet has added importance being from the final printing in this colour (5 March 1894). A remarkable survival from the first and only stamp design issued by the Orange Free State.

The stanley Gibbons catalogue value is £3,360+.
