Tonga 1962 (7 Feb) "Emancipation" Official type O3 overprint, PROOF (x2) in RED of the complete 5x6 setting used to overprint respectively the lower halves (this with "WALLBANK" imprint at foot, on yellowish horizontally laid pair) and upper halves (without imprint, on yellowish wove paper) of sheets of the 2d, 5d and 1s values, SGO11/13.

Each shows "OFFICIAI" at R4/2 (and several other repeated flaws), but only the upper half proof has "MAII" at R2/5. Some creasing but a fascinating and important pair.

A unique piece.
