1964 Shakespeare set with CANCELLED overprint. Very scarce
This lot is a set of the 1964 Shakespeare (ordinary) commemorative stamps each with the CANCELLED overprint Type B. The 3d, 6d and 1.6d values are unmounted mint , the 1/3d is mounted mint, and the 2/6d is very lightly mounted mint. The 2/6d stamp is in the rare jet-black shade, and is possibly from a proof sheet issued in error, as most examples of this rare shade have the CANCELLED overprint. These are listed as W41b, W42d, W43c, W44b, and W45b in my old SG Specialised catalogue, although only the 3d and 2/6d values are given values in that catalogue. The item “1964 Shakespeare set with CANCELLED overprint. Very scarce” is in sale since Thursday, June 13, 2019. This item is in the category “Stamps\Great Britain\Elizabeth II\Pre-Decimal (1952-1971)”. The seller is “alex5411″ and is located in Melbourne. This item can be shipped worldwide.
