SARAWAK 1934-41 $1 to$10 six values, SG120/5
Sarawak 1934-41 $1 to $10, six values, in matching blocks of 4, each centrally cancelled by superb 'LIMBANG' type D6 circular date stamps, dated '5 JE 46', five days before Proud's catalogue recorded earliest date, SG120/5.
A fine quality used set with lovely colours. The $3 block with separation between upper pair but a splendid group of blocks.
Extremely scarce in this form and particularly important because of the date of use being five days before the recorded earliest date.
The 1934-41 issue was brought back into use after the withdrawal of the British Military Administration (BMA) set (and the end of the Military Administration) in April 1946.
The design of these stamps is most appealing featuring Sir Charles Vyner Brooke with stunning oriental columns on either side. Sir Charles was the third and last white Rajah of Sarawak.
The Stanley Gibbons catalogue value is £1,375+.
