An exceptional cover. Ex Charlton Henry & John Marriott: acquired for £3680 (2001). BPA Certificate (2002). Marriott & Ramkissoon state at page 32 "...there was only one small consignment of 3000 1/- stamps" and at page 33 "Two covers are known with the 1/-, one having a pair", which is also noted as the only recorded multiple. Illustrated on Plate 6. John Marriott obviously considered this cover to be one of his greatest items: he selected it (and an unused "Lady McLeod" stamp) to illustrate his entry at page 97 of the "Amphilex 96" catalogue. He did not have an unused or used single of this rare & underrated stamp.
