Natal 1895 ½d on 6d Pre-Printing Paper Repair Block


1895 ½d on 6d violet quarter sheet 12x5 margin to margin (SG 114). The block shows down left hand column a PRE-PRINTING PRINTER'S PAPER REPAIR, the first such we have encountered on Perkins Bacon issues. The repair clearly occurred at theoriginal printing stage rather than the local overprinting due to its being perforated through the repair. Contemporary nature of the repair confirmed by the perforations and nature of gum. The block also has the overprint setting flaws (EALF etc) as associated with this part of the sheet. Couple imperfections, perf splitting as expected. A technically extremely interesting error block for the Natal Perkins Bacon printings. See additional scans below for detail.
