Lagos SG#33 4d Deep Mauve and Black 1887-1901 Queen Victoria Bicoloured Keyplate Issue, Beautiful CDS Used Example


A well centered and scarce socked-on-the-nose CDS used example of an earlier printing of the 4d deep mauve and black Queen Victoria stamp from the 1887-1901 Bicoloured Keyplate Issue.  Cancelled with an October 7, 1892 21 mm Lagos CDS cancel, which is unusual, as most 4d stamps received the 8 bar or 9-bar oval killers that were in use during the life of this issue. Gibbons price is for this type of cancel, and is 1.75 pounds (approximately $3.50). This example should be worth $5 with this cancel. The stamp offered here grades 82 as follows:

Centering/margins: 44/60 

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10

Cancellation: 8/10
