Description

St Lucia 1904-10 set of 9 to 5s, watermark MCA, overprinted 'SPECIMEN', SG65s/77s.

A fine quality mint set with large part original gum to full original gum. The first 6d and 5s have minor gum creases, and the 1s with a short perforation. Very minor imperfections, which do not detract since it is still well above average for these issue with lovely fresh colours.

A scarce King Edward VII set of Specimen stamps and difficult to complete as it was distributed in three parts.

These "SPECIMEN" examples were used solely by postal administrations for reference purposes to help spot any attempted forgeries.

The Stanley Gibbons catalogue value is £325.
