FINE APPEARANCE. THE UNIQUE EXAMPLE OF THE 1866 2-ANNA OFFICIAL PROVISIONAL WITH COMPLETE "FOREIGN BILL" INSCRIPTION. ONE OF THE THE MOST IMPORTANT INDIAN STAMPS IN EXISTENCE AND A KEY ITEM FOR THE SERIOUS INDIA OR BRITISH COMMONWEALTH COLLECTOR.

The 1866 Provisional was introduced due to the Post Office Act XIV on May 1, 1866. This was done as an attempt to curb abuse of Government Officials in using stamps for personal use and lead to proper accounting of mail sent through Official channels. These improvised stamps were done by taking "Foreign Bill" revenues, cutting off to the top and bottom inscriptions and overprinting the stamp "Service Postage".

To date, this is the sole example of the 2a with inscriptions intact. There is also an example of the 8a with inscriptions.

Stamp is marked "Ex Burrus" though it does not appear in his sale. With 2008 R.P.S. certificate.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A MARVELOUS NEVER HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 2-RUPEES ON 10-RUPEES OFFICIAL WITH SURCHARGE ERRONEOUSLY PRINTED ON THE KING GEORGE V STAMP.

This surcharge was supposed to be printed on the King Edward VII stamps but a small number were mistakenly applied to the King George V stamps. The current Scott catalogue value of $800.00 is a mystery to us.
