24ca. rose-red variety imperforate between vertical pair each neatly cancelled by Tientsin seal type X in blue, each struck sideways. Exceptionally fresh and fine, bright colour and a magnificent example of this popular, high value variety. Photo
This variety occured on three sheets, of the twenty five possible pairs (pne sheet was overprinted with small characters surcharge) we have records on 14 unused and 5 used pairs. It is thought that this pair came from pane 3 and joins a similarly cancelled pair which has the right interpanneau margin
