Great Britain 1974 3½p Christmas error, SG966a

SKU JC2054

Great Britain 1974 3½p Christmas error, SG966a.

Superb unmounted mint with full original gum vertical strip of three with light stone (background shading) completely omitted from the top stamp and partially omitted from the middle stamp.

A great rarity and quintessential Queen Elizabeth II error with only three examples recorded.

The stamp depicts "The Adoration of the Magi", taken from the roof boss (the centre of the vaulting ribs) in the nave of York Minster. The boss is dated about 1355. The colours used on the stamp were stone, light grey, blue, gold, brown and black.

No longer listed in the Stanley Gibbons catalogue, due to their change in policy regarding not listing prices of stamps of the most extreme rarity, but was previously listed at a value of £45,000.
