Description:

Excellent example of a pair of marginal King of the Orient 3d stamp, as designed by T. Shemza, with errors. Namely, the gold and embossed Queen’s head has been shifted to the left.

Besides that particular curiosity, this pair is an excellent example of how the phosphor bands were printed. It shows why for each version with the band on the right is matched by one on the left - the band was merely run down the middle. This example, moreover, has the cylinder number 1A in the upper selvedge.

All things considered the stamp is in fine condition. The face and gum are unblemished; the watermark is clear; the perforations are complete, and the colour is vibrant and unnamed. Overall a great error specimen.
