Description: 'G.R.I.' PERIOD: 1915 Name of Town in Seriffed Letters 'G.R.I /3d.' (No Stop after 'I ') on 'Manus/(Deutsch Neuguinea)' - registration label SG 43a, light Rabaul cds, Cat 5000. A rare stamp. Ex Gibbs: Lot 1961. BPA Certificate (1981) states " genuine" but "No opinion can be expressed on an apparent cancellation" (a silly statement suggesting the cancellation is of unknown origin or status when it is obviously a poor strike of the common Rabaul cds). [Illustrated by Gibbs at page 104 where he states "I have recorded 25 examples (of SG 43), of which 6 are used". Of the variety he records 3 unused & 4 used]
