Great Britain USED in Gibraltar: The Discovery copy - UNLISTED BY STANLEY GIBBONS of the 1855 (GB SG Nr.21) 1d red-brown P16 wmk small crown Die II cancelled by clear well-positioned 'A26' SG Z3 canceller type. This stamp is unlisted by SG as cancelled by the small Z3 'A26' canceller type - yet this example comes with BPA 27 NOV 1967 certificate of authenticity - stating genuine but thinned/fault, it is also misperfed, signed by prestigious expert 'Robson Lowe' and well-known 'Pemberton' Experts and one other signatory. As discovery copy the buyer should show this stamp to SG for classification and a new SG number, in the meantime let's consider value. This stamp cannot be 'less' rare than the 1841 1d imperf SG Z16 catalogued at £2,500, and being 'unique' after 163 years should in our opinion really command a catalogue value approaching double that value. Consequently we're starting this 'new discovery' example off at a 'tad' below £1,250=: certainly the price will reduce till sold but it will not be given away - so how far a reduction and how long offered for sale is another matter. A true treasure gem for the Gib 'specialist' collector (image available) (Start Price = £956.00)
