1897 Small Dragon Surcharges
Large Figures
2c. on 3ca. mauve, rough perf.12½ plate proof of the wide setting without watermark, traces of gum. The surcharge shows positional variety gin broken at right whilst the basic stamp appears to show the broken "3" of cliché 1 (this would suggest left pane [6] of setting VI). The stamp is centred to the right and there is a light horizontal bend at top. A very rare proof of the unissued wide setting surcharge. Chan 35T. Photo

A few proofs of the wide setting have been recorded, these may be either imperofate or perforated
