VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A VERY RARE MULTIPLE MADE EVEN MORE INTERESTING BY HAVING THE LEFT STAMP WITH NARROW WIDTH.
The March printing was made with nine stamps per row, though the width of each stamp was made by Reverend Millar as he went along, resulting in a variance of width from 20mm to 26mm. In April, Reverend Millar changed the format of producing these stamps, so that eleven stamps were placed in each row, with stamps measuring 16 to18mm. The 30c value is considerably more rare in the narrow setting (Scott and SG No. 22). The left stamp on this strip measures exactly 18mm, which would be in the range of the narrow setting, though is was produced in the March printing, since the other two stamps measure at least 20mm. If the left stamp were separated from the strip, it could easily be classified as the narrow (April) printing, which catalogs $9,000.00 per stamp.
