Sold out
SKU Lot61

A very fine and scarce CDS used example of the 10d deep mauve and deep bright orange yellow Queen Victoria stamp from the 1887-1902 Bicoloured Keyplate Issue, cancelled with a March 2, 1894 Lagos CDS cancel. The 5d, 7.5d and 10d stamps from this issue were released in 1894, for the payment of registration fees on insured letters. As such they were not in high demand, and as a result, most of the stamps one encounters are usually mint. Postally used examples are scarce, especially this nice. Gibbons values a fine used example at 13 pounds (approximately $26). The stamp offered here grades 80 as follows:

Margins/centering: 40/60

Paper freshness: 5/5

Colour: 5/5

Impression: 5/5

Absence of visible paper flaws: 5/5

Perforations: 10/10

Cancellation: 10/10
