Original gum, fresh color, clear tripling of surcharge though close together as all known examples

FINE AND EXCEPTIONALLY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT BANGKOK WITH TREBLE "B" OVERPRINT. ONE OF THE RAREST BANGKOK OVERPRINT ERRORS WITH JUST A FEW EXAMPLES KNOWN. IT IS ALSO THE ONLY VALUE FROM THE SERIES THAT EXISTS WITH A TRIPLE OVERPRINT.

While partial "double" and "triple" overprints exist on numerous values, in order to be classified as a "true" error, there needs to be clear and complete separate overprints. The example offered here has just that - three identifiable strikes of the "B" overprint.
