China, Red Revenue large figures surcharge $5 on 3c. red, variety surcharge inverted, a fantastic rejoined strip of three from the top left corner of the sheet with complete selvedge on two sides, positions 23-24-25, good colour, well centred, unused without gum, the sheet margins on positions 24 and 25 are intact, while that on position 23 has been largely rejoined, light soiling mainly on reverse which is only visible on front between stamps and in top sheet margins, in a sound state of conservation for what is one of the key items not only of the $5 on 3c. inverted surcharge but also the Red Revenues as a whole. Chan 91a.
Estimate HK$ 4,800,000 - 5,500,000
