Block of four, top stamps barely hinged, bottom stamps Mint N.H., pretty shade on fresh paper, bottom pair with minor wrinkle and small pencil notation

VERY FINE AND RARE BLOCK OF THE 6-PENCE KING EDWARD VII ARMY OFFICIAL. THIS IS THE LARGEST KNOWN MULTIPLE WITH ONLY ONE OTHER BLOCK THOUGHT TO EXIST.

According to an Official specialist, two blocks of four are known, with the next largest multiple a strip of three. Following the Inland Revenue (I.R.) overprints, requests were made by other government departments for their own overprinted stamps. The Army, along with Office of Works, were rejected in their attempts at first. The Post Office would not supply the stamps free of charge. A case was made to the Treasury and a compromise was molded whereby the stamps were to be purchased straight from the printer.

Ex Baillie. With 1947 and 1989 R.P.S. certificates. SG £15,000
