Lagos #44s-46s 1/2d-2d King Edward VII, 1903-1904 Single Crown CA Issue, VG and VF Mint Specimen Overprints
Three very good and very fine mint OG examples of the 1/2d green and dull green, 1d black and purple on red, and 2d Royal blue and deep dull purple King Edward VII stamps from the 1903-1904 Crown CA issue, with Specimen overprints.
The specimen overprints were produced only for distribution to member nations to the UPU and as such fewer than 400 of each stamp exist so overprinted.
Gibbons only prices the set for the specimen overprints. However a fair estimate for these three low values is $18. The stamps offered here grade 60, and 84 as follows:
Centering/margins: 54/70 (1/2d and 2d) and 35/70 (1d)
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
Perforations: 10/10 (1/2d and 2d), 5/10 (1d)
