Description: 1908-09 Sultan Ali bin Hamoud stamp-size essay for a 2a value comprising the printed frame in bright blue - highlighted with Chinese white - superimposed over photographic vignette of the Sultan affixed to thin card (90x114mm), endorsed "C" & dated "July 18th 97" at upper-right, further endorsed "approved for the anna stamps down to 3:", initialled & with date h/s '25JUL197' [sic] at lower-right, some very minor/insignificant soiling that does not affect the stamp. A stunning essay! Ex De La Rue Archives and Ian Borrie.

De La Rue prepared three essays, this being the approved version. However, the Zanzibar currency changed from annas to cents in early-1898, requiring amended designs.
