EXTREMELY FINE. A GEM CORNER SELVAGE SINGLE OF THE 5-SHILLING KING EDWARD VII I.R. OFFICIAL WITH RAISED PERIOD. A SCARCE VARIETY ON AN ALREADY RARE STAMP.

The Raised Stop variety occurred on the top row of each pane. The presence of the sheet margin indicates this came from the last position of the first row. The variety was never corrected and is therefore known on all the Queen Victoria and King Edward VII Shilling denominations. According to records listed in Wiseman, only 69 sheets were printed with the variety occurring 16 times in a sheet of 240. Considering natural attrition from use and the already scarce availability of unused Officials, it is unlikely that more than a small handful of examples with this variety are available to collectors today.

With 1986 Brandon and 1989 B.P.A. certificates. Catalogued as hinged. SG £50,000. Scott $42,500.00
