VERY FINE. ONE OF THE RAREST STAMPS OF THE BRITISH WEST INDIES AND ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE WORLD TRAVELER COLLECTION.

This rarity was produced when one sheet of twenty 2-1/2p stamps was surcharged with the first setting of the One Penny overprint. Most of these were used, leaving only about five unused copies surviving today (one of which is regummed). The example offered here is one of the finest of the tiny number known.

Signed Bloch and with a 1968 R.P.S. certificate. SG £21,000
