BRITISH CENTRAL AFRICA / NYASALAND
BCA overprints to 1896 Arms
 -  BRITISH CENTRAL AFRICA / NYASALAND  -  1895 'Arms' issue without watermark, SG 21-31
NY1024
£25 black and blue-green. Unusually well centred, hinge remnant, fresh and very fine mint. An exceptional example of this classic high value rarity. SG 31

Note: of the few surviving examples of this rare stamp, many are noticeably off-centre. In addition, a significant number also appear to have been separated with scissors resulting in clipped and trimmed perforations. This example being free of such faults could well be the finest extant.
