1226 Oc S.G. #39ab, 39ac image#39ab, 39ac, 1859 (Nov.) 2p Blue "Lapirot" issue, the unique used horizontal pairs showing the remarkable "Maurituis" and "Mauritus" spelling errors from the retouched plate; the "Maurituis" error being the right stamp in a superb horizontal pair, positions 7-8 from the plate of 12, featuring large to enormous margins all around, with strong color and an excellent impression, each stamp with neat clear strike of target cancel, with the postmark on the right stamp wonderfully positioned so that the spelling error is completely unobscured, extremely fine; the "Mauritus" error being being the left stamp in a horizontal pair, positions 9-10, and used on an 1859 entire from Thomas La Chambre & Co. in Port Louis to Portrieux, France, sent "Via Suez and Marseille", clear "G.P.O./Nov 9, 1859/Mauritius" double ring c.d.s. on reverse, red Suez transit c.d.s. on front, along with numerous transit and arrival postmarks on reverse, pair with clear even margins all around, wonderfully postmarked with two clear "PAID" in circle cancels, neither of which obscures the spelling error, addressee's name partially erased, light split at top of cover from central filing fold well away from adhesives, very fine. It seems clear that the re-engraving of the worn out "Lapirot" plate imagetook place immediately before the re-engraving of the original 2p "Post Paid" plate (attributed to Sherwin), as the above mentioned cover is dated November 9, 1859, while the earliest recorded "Sherwin" cover is dated November 10, 1859. It is likely that the spelling errors were noticed as soon as the sheets were printed from the retouched Lapirot plate, leading to its immediate withdrawal from use, and being replaced by the "Sherwin" plate. Then on December 12th the "Dardenne" lithographed issue came into use. Each of these spectacular spelling errors are the only recorded examples, and despite their obvious appearance they, quite remarkably, remained undiscovered for over 130 years. In fact, they resided unnoticed in the magnificent "Kanai" collection, the most important collection of classic Mauritius ever formed, and they were even illustrated in Classic Mauritius (pages 93-94) - again without reference to their unique nature. Even the subsequent owner failed to recognize that two major spelling errors had occurred in the course of re-engraving, as the country name "Mauritius" appears as "Maurituis" on position 8, and "Mauritus" on position 9. These two errors of spelling, as a result of re-engraving, are without equal in British Empire Philately, and the two pairs clearly rank among the most important and extraordinary classic errors in existence. They may be ranked alongside the inverted head of the 1854 4a of India and the 1855 4p inverted swan of Australia. Yet, there remains a significant difference between these more well-known errors and the two error pairs offered here - the "Maurituis" and "Mauritus" errors are unique. Each is accompanied by a 1994 BPA certificate specifically describing the errors. (Image) S.G. £200,000
