Fine and VFOG OG examples of the 1/2d dull green & deep green, 2.5d purple and ultramarine and 1/0 dull green and black, King Edward VII De La Rue Keyplate stamps from the 1903-1904 Crown CA watermarked issue, all with specimen overprint. Most of these were issued in quantities of 300-400 of each.

2022 Scott Classic does not list specimen overprints, but Gibbons does and the equivalent value is approximately $65, taking all the overprints as having the same value within the set, as all are generally of the same scarcity.
