1863-71 Private Separations Roulette 8 6d dull lilac SG 55 horizontal pair, rouletted all sides & clear of the design except at the base but Imperforate Between, light numeral cancels, Cat 700++. Superb! [** A client has pointed out that there ARE roulettes between the units. However, they are very lightly impressed and do not break the paper at any point. Technically, therefore, the pair is "imperforate between". However, the estimate and reserve have been reduced to $1000 & $750 respectively **]
