MOROCCO AGENCIES 1899 2p black and carmine, SG16
Morocco Agencies 1899 2p black and carmine, type 2 De La Rue overprint, lower marginal block of 4 with plate number '2', SG16.
A stunning unmounted mint positional block of four with full original gum. Minor marginal wrinkles (just affecting one stamp), mentioned purely for accuracy as most attractive.
A scarce block as only 70 sheets sold were sold of this higher value stamp.
Following a decision to identify the exact revenue derived from the Morocco postal service, separate stamps were needed for the Morocco Agencies. This requirement further became necessary because of a Revision of Fees Ordinance in Gibraltar, which required all fees to be collected in Sterling, while the Morocco Agencies continued to use Spanish currency. This led to the introduction of Gibraltar stamps with 'Morocco Agencies' overprints.
