NAURU

1916 10/- pale blue Great Britain Sea Horses (De La Rue printing) with treble NAURU overprint. The normal overprint in red, a second faint overprint in black underneath that and an albino strike of the overprint under the black one, mint hinged – no thins, tears or bends.  Has a BPA photo-certificate.

This example has the same centering and positioning of overprints as the three that were in the Buckingham sale held by Grosvenor in 2006 (lots # 901-903), easily the finest collection of Nauru ever formed. This example has better perforations than the example that sold for £2900 + add-ons (almost AUS$6000) and is possibly the finest of the five or six known examples.
