Lot 1035 Hong Kong, 1891 7c. on 10c. green, variety surcharge double, with the second overprint approx. 7mm. to northeast, unused with part original gum, good colour, light toning and soiling and small faults, nevertheless a very rare stamp with this exceedingly wide spacing of two full strikes of the surcharge. B.P.A. certificate (2000). S.G. 43b var.
Estimate HK$ 8,000 - 10,000


The second overprint is lighter and almost coincidental on the double surcharges normally encountered on this stamp. Air Commodore Gurevitch notes and illustrates much rarer double surcharges approx. 4-5mm. apart in his Queen Victoria Postal Adhesives, as well as examples where the second overprint is in the corner of the stamp up to 14mm. distant from the first overprint and has been partly erased. He did not, however, record this double surcharge with the equal-intensity surcharges 7mm. apart.
