Mint (Hinged), Catalog #7a,var.
BRITISH COLUMBIA: Sc.#7a,var. * 3d. Pale Blue, SPECTACULAR block of 4 with WATERMARK "INVERTED & REVERSED" (listed by SG. Cat.#22Y) but not priced. An incredible RARITY thought NOT TO EXIST and probably a UNIQUE multiple (we know the existance of ONLY one other single) SHOWPIECE. With 2 Certificates. Noted that Robson Lowe had SOLD this block in 1946 to a Canadian Soldier returning to Canada after the Second World War for the enormous amount of £900. (about $25,000. In today's currency after calculating the amount over the years). He claimed that this is the UNIQUE multiple and that it originally comes from Count Ferrari. A GREAT RARITY. (normal single accompanies for comparison)
