SIERRA LEONE 1897 2½d on 1s dull lilac, SG64

SKU JC2389

Sierra Leone 1897 2½d on 1s dull lilac, type 9 surcharge from R2/9 of the setting, used with two part strikes of 'PAQUEBOT/L(IVERPO)OL' circular date stamps, dated 'JA 9 98', SG64.

A much finer used example than normally found. Despite minor perforation toning and a slightly heavy cancel, it benefits from true colour and fine appearance.

A very rare and desirable stamp as only a maximum of 71 possible examples, many of which were water-stained.

It is of further philatelic importance as it is believed to be unique with this cancel.

The Stanley Gibbons catalogue value is £1,300.
