1903 OW Official marginal block of four. I must admit I didn't have a clue what this stamp was when I first saw the article (its an official, which im not too brushed up on). Anyway, its being sold at a small auction house near Newcastle in the UK and is by far the biggest lot they have ever handled. Good luck guys!

Official stamps were basically used in Governmental departments. I believe the word official was overprinted to stop the civil servants stealing the postage stamps. Good to know that even 100 years ago they had our best interest at heart!
