    Lot 868
    Estimate: $4,000

    3d Dull Green Perf. 12 irregular mint block of 52, being the larger part of a left pane, some perf. separation and a few units stained but a remarkable piece. This piece is the more remarkable as it shows the final overprint setting introduced in late 1884 for the small De La Rue stamps. This showed the ‘O’ and ‘S’ spaced 7mm, with [22] on each pane being the variety 8½mm spacing, and [28] having a broken ‘O’; both these varieties are present on this block. Other than for this piece, there is no evidence for the use of this setting on the 3d value, and the block may be of trial status, particularly as it represents a very late use of this 3d printing. A detailed article reporting the discovery of this block appeared in Sydney Views of August 1986. SG O5bb, Cat. £10400+
