Large to huge margins all around, bright color and very sharp impression, thick paper typical of the earliest impressions, grid cancel

EXTREMELY FINE. AN OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE OF THE RARE MAURITIUS 1848 ONE-PENNY POST PAID EARLIEST IMPRESSION.

The first stamps of Mauritius were engraved directly onto two copper plates. The plates wore away relatively quickly, and so only a very limited number of impressions qualify as the earliest.
