Sale Number 1049, Lot Number 1178, India incl. Convention and Feudatory StatesINDIA, 1852, -1/2a Red, Scinde District Post (A3; SG S3), INDIA, 1852, -1/2a Red, Scinde District Post (A3; SG S3)INDIA, 1852, -1/2a Red, Scinde District Post (A3; SG S3). Complete design, excellent embossing, tiny edge nick at about five o'clock position, cancelled by diamond of dots and later affixed to small piece

VERY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE AND UNCOMMONLY CHOICE EXAMPLE OF THE RED "SCINDE DAWK".

The -1/2a Red Scinde Dawk was the first stamp issued in all of Asia. Because it was embossed on wafer it had a tendency to crack (and often disintegrate). It was deemed unacceptable and quickly replaced with the white and blue stamps embossed on paper. The example offered here, completely intact and essentially sound, is among the very finest of the small number available.

Although the Scott catalog notes that two unused copies exist, current research suggests these were all cancelled by the postmaster prior to affixing on the letter, and that no genuine unused examples exists. One of the two previously thought unused copies received a recent negative B.P.A. certificate.

Signed Bloch and with clear 1926 R.P.S. and 1971 Friedl certificates. SG £21,000
