8c. on 6ca brown variety imperforate between vertical strip of three, the lower two stamps used on piece with 4c. on 4ca. rose-pink cancelled by part Ningpo Dollar dater, the upper stamp partly covered by French "Chine" 50c. tied by "shang-hai/chine" c.d.s.. The upper stamp of the pair has been roughly torn from the strip. A rare used example of this error. Photo

It is interesting to note that this pair has a very wide left margin, this does not fit the typical centring of the other strips
