Description:

1865 2(Er)ca black, printing 41, touched in places and cut slightly into at top right, showing red cds, stamp cut into two and rejoined with piece of paper on back, still though a very desirable and extremely rare genuinely used example; (Mi. €9’000).

Note: It is interesting to note that the stamp is clearly printed in a bluish grey shade, which may have resulted from the colour mixture of grey and remains of blue from printing 39 of the 1 candarin. No used examples of this stamp are illustrated in the Fortune Wang handbook.
