North Korea, 1949 Kim Il Sung University 1w. blue, variety coarse impression, with sheet margin at top, unused without gum as issued, small faults but overall sound and fine appearing, a major Asian rarity; a postally used example of the normal stamp in the pale blue shade accompanies for comparison. Scott 18 var. Property of another vendor.
Estimate HK$ 4,000 - 5,000


The stamp's impression differs markedly from those normally encountered and is closer to those found on the 1 won violet of the set, suggesting multiple printings.


 
Realized HK$ 7,475
