1899 (May) "Four cents." on 5c. dull purple and olive-yellow, variety surcharge double, one albino, fine mint. The discovery example. B.P.A. Certificate (2018). S.G. 28a, unpriced. Photo

Note: The albino with typical off-setting is misplaced horizontally by precisely the width of the interpanneau margin that was still attached when the subject stamps were presented to the un-inked forme - upside down. The un-inked forme was used to line up the type and subject, the pane was up the right way when surcharged with inked type.
