A fine and fresh unmounted mint positional block with full original gum. The top left stamp has a short perforation, and unimportant creasing in the top margin, but quite remarkable quality for this issue.

After the Treaty of Versailles, stamps of Batum were issued for the short period between 1918-20 under the occupation of the British. It then became an autonomous republic of the Georgian SSR in 1921.
