Rhodesia & Nyasaland 1959-62 1d (carmine-red and) grey-black, coil stamp, perforations 12½ x 14, ERROR CENTRE OMITTED, SG19ac.

A fine unmounted mint example with full original gum. Trivial perforation blemishes, which do not detract in any way from overall fine quality.

A dramatic error with the missing carmine-red colour resulting in the omission of the central design of a VHF mast.

The Stanley Gibbons catalogue value is £200.

The Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, also known as the Central African Federation (CAF), was a semi-independent state in southern Africa that existed from 1953 to the end of 1963.

The state included the former self-governing (since 1923) Colony of Southern Rhodesia and the British protectorates of Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland. The Federation officially ended on 31 December 1963, when Northern Rhodesia gained independence from the United Kingdom.
