an inverted center, luxuriously rich colors, well centered, o.g., theS.G. #32 var., 1927-28 10/- Bright blue and brown, bilingual pair, Center Inverted, a fabulous top right corner sheet-margin vertical bilingual pair, with each stamp displaying an inverted center, luxuriously rich colors, well centered, o.g., the stamps themselves appear to be never hinged, vertical perforations separated along right edge, very fine and choice.This pair is one of the rarest and most visually striking inverted center errors of the entire British Empire. While most of these errors are found as single stamps separated from the original discovery multiple, very few still exist as intact bilingual pairs - this being one of only two such pairs of which we are aware. It is conjectured that the size of the sheet margins remaining on this pair are larger than those found on the issued stamps, leading one to conclude that this might have been from a trial printing. Regardless, this stunning pair is one of the most sought after pieces in the collecting realm of inverted centers of the world.The Stanley Gibbons catalog only lists this error as singles (£11,000 each), so therefore we have simply cataloged this as two singles, without adding any premium for being an intact pair. Accompanied by a 1979 BPA certificate (Scott #32c var.). (Image) as two singles £22,000+
