Part original gum, precise centering with wide margins, strong color, couple short perfs at top and bottom

VERY FINE AND RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 6-CENT ON 8-CENT SURCHARGE ON THE ARMS STAMP INSCRIBED "POSTAGE". ONE OF THE KEY RARITIES TO NORTH BORNEO.

This provisional was placed into use due to the change in postal rates to 6c for postcards (April 1891) and letters (June 1891) to most destinations. The 8c stamps were used since the rate had been abolished and stocks were plentiful. It is theorized that one, possibly two, sheets of the Arms with "Postage" were used rather than those inscribed "Postage & Revenue" -- perhaps by accident or due to availability.

The first example we have offered since keeping computerized records. With 2012 Sismondo certificate. Scott $9,000.00. SG £9,000

VERY FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THIS CELEBRATED BRITISH COMMONWEALTH RARITY -- THE 1904 25-POUND KING EDWARD VII OF NORTHERN NIGERIA. ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT-AFTER 20TH CENTURY BRITISH AFRICA STAMPS. ONLY A VERY SMALL HANDFUL ARE THOUGHT TO STILL EXIST.

Despite the inscription "Postage & Revenue" along the sides, it is almost unfathomable to consider what would cost £25 for postal fees. For perspective, a regular envelope to England would be a couple pence. The intention of this stamp was to be used for revenue purposes only, such as liquor licenses.

With 1980 B.P.A. certificate (not mentioning toning). Scott $60,000.00. SG £60,000
