FINE. AN IMPORTANT AND SELDOM-OFFERED BRITISH COMMONWEALTH RARITY, OF WHICH ONLY ABOUT 30 EXAMPLES ARE RECORDED.
All of the known examples of this invert are cancelled to order, as they were discovered in packets after having been "remaindered," cancelled and sold below face value.
EXTREMELY FINE. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE $25.00 HIGH-VALUE PERAK. RARELY ENCOUNTERED IN THIS PREMIUM CONDITION.
The $25.00 Perak is a major rarity of the Malay States and far more difficult to encounter than the same denomination from the Federated States and Selangor. This stamp is found with far more frequency with the "Specimen" overprint. Unused examples are often faulty to some degree and most are found with "washed" or faded colors.
VERY FINE AND RARE UNUSED BLOCK OF THE 2-CENT ROSE WITH "P.G.S." OFFICIAL OVERPRINT DOUBLED.
The P.G.S. stands for "Perak Government Service". With 1971 B.P.A. certificate. Catalogued as singles. SG £3,600
