TRANSJORDAN 1923 20p pale grey error, SG68a

SKU JC2787

Transjordan 1923 (1 Mar) 20p pale grey, type 5 overprint in 'gold', ERROR OVERPRINT INVERTED, SG68a.

A fresh and fine mint example with original gum.

Only 1,570 were issued of the basic stamp and this is the first time we have handled this inverted overprint error.

Accompanied with a British Philatelic Association (BPA) certificate of authenticity (2005).

NB. The overprint is black to the naked eye, with only minute traces of gold visible under magnification in strong light. The gold overprints were created by sprinkling gold dust on wet black ink.

Provenance: This stamp clearly comes from the same pane as the block of SG68ga (black overprint inverted) illustrated by Abed Habib Najjar on p.45 of his book, The Stamps of Jordan 1920-65: A Philatelic Study.
