1914-15 "GRI 5s." 3½mm opt DNG Yacht 2Mk blue, being ERROR OF VALUE as opt is 5s instead of 3s. Fresh UN, expertly repaired tears in top margin & sl reperfed, but superb appearance (the condition problems are almost invisible and the stamp previously had a fully clear 2003 BPA photo-cert that did not mention them at all, which is an indication that almost all collectors will definitely be happy with the condition of this example). SG 13c cat £45,000. One of the great rarities of the GRI overprints with only 1 row of 4 stamps printed. 2005 BPA photo-cert, while diff new cert can be obtained on request. (P)
