Description

South Africa Orange Free State 1896 'Halve/Penny.' on 3d ultramarine, type 10 surcharge, complete folded upper half-sheet of 120 (two panes 6x10) showing the full setting of 120, with error 'Peuny.' at R3/1 left pane and variety 'No stop' at R10/6 right pane, SG77/9var.

The surcharge is also misplaced downwards, so that the TOP ROW IS WITHOUT BAR, while all other rows show BAR AT TOP (with additional bar in margin below row 10).

A fine quality mint sheet with large part original gum (most stamps are unmounted mint). Neatly presented on an exhibition page. Some creases as to be expected for a sheet of this size and minor soiling at upper right, but overall fine and fresh.

Very rare and remarkable as a double pane with misplaced surcharge, with even single examples of R3/1 (SG 79) and R10/6 (SG 78) being rare in this form.
