In addition, it is one of the key highlights for a serious collection of inverted centers of the world. Less than ten examples are known - all of which are used - and two of them are found on a single cover, leaving less than eight copies available to collectors.

As such, this is not only an indispensable rarity for the finest collection of classic Russian stamps, but is also one of the most important stamps to seek out for the most advanced collector of inverted centers of the world.Another spectacular rarity from the amazing Cunliffe collection that has also graced the collections of several other famous collections such as Ferrary, Rothschild and Goss (Michel #27xK; €50,000).
