Lagos #62 5/- Deep Ultramarine and Dull Green King Edward VII, 1904-1906 Multiple Crown CA Issue Very Fine Mint OG - Only 6,240 Issued!
A very well centered and very fine LH example of the 5/- deep ultramarine and dull green King Edward VII stamp from the 1904-1906 multiple Crown CA issue, on ordinary paper.
Gibbons values a hinged example at 25 pounds (approximately $50). Per notes in Ince, only 6,240 of these were originally issued in 1904, so the number surviving to date must be much less. That makes this scarcer than many recognized rarities. Consequently, this is grossly undervalued in Gibbons. The stamp offered here grades 80 as follows:
Paper freshness: 5/5
Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5
