VERY FINE. A LOVELY EXAMPLE OF THIS RARE PERFORATION ERROR. ESPECIALLY RARE AS A BLOCK OF FOUR CONTAINING TWO EXAMPLES OF THE ERROR.
The ACSC notes that two sheets had a line of perfs omitted between the 3rd and 4th horizontal rows. Only one other block of four is recorded, in the archives of the Australia Post.
SG £3,400 as two errors.
VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE CAYE SERVICE LOCAL POST ISSUE. APPROXIMATELY SEVEN COVERS ARE KNOWN.
Around 1892 a Belize merchant named Cuthbert built a house on St. George's Cay. He also bought a steam yacht which sailed daily to and from Belize. After abuse of the free service by others on the caye, who expected their mails to be carried free of charge, he created this local typewritten stamp (the cost of producing dies and normal stamps was prohibitive). Approximately seven covers are known, used between July 28, 1894 and Sept. 27, 1895.
VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE CANADA SEAWAY INVERT.
