VERY FINE. A REMARKABLE USE OF A PAIR OF THE 1894 DOUBLE SURCHARGE PROVISIONAL ON A COVER FRONT TO LONDON. ONLY 24 EXAMPLES WERE PRINTED.

EXTREMELY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE 1894 "OIE" FOR "ONE" AND DOUBLE SURCHARGE. THIS IS THE UNIQUE EXAMPLE IN PRIVATE HANDS. THE ONLY OTHER RECORDED EXAMPLE IS IN THE ROYAL COLLECTION.
A total of 960 provisional surcharges were made. They were surcharged in rows of eight with only three rows receiving the double surcharge -- for a total of 24 double surcharges. The "OIE" error occurred once in a setting (position 8) -- which resulted in three errors that also have the double surcharge. The third example has not been located, and it is doubtful it ever will be.
