1888 unappropriated dies set of 11, 1d to 6d and 2/- to £5, each handstamped ‘CANCELLED’ (Samuel type GB14). Most with rather heavy hinge remainders and little or no gum (or regummed). Nevertheless, of fine appearance and in average condition for these. Rare. SG 10-14, 16-21 Cancelled
Note: Samuel (p35) states this handstamp was applied with the permission of the Inland Revenue from 1886, by De La Rue, to 12 examples of each of the postage and revenue stamps printed for the Inland Revenue.
