Samoa 1940 1½d brown "Samoan Chief", WITHOUT SURCHARGE, block of 4, SG199var.

A fine and fresh mint block without gum. Fractionally trimmed perforations at foot but very scarce.

The stamp was never issued in this form as all were issued with a 3d surcharge overprint. The existence of this variety was unknown until the dispersal of the Bradbury Wilkinson archive and no examples have ever been recorded outside of archival examples.

An attractive and interesting rarity.
