1206 O 1 var. image#1 var., 2c Rose, with "Panama" 14 3/4 to 15mm long, position 53, appears unused (and even has part o.g.) but lightly cancelled at bottom right, well centered, bright color, slightly pulled perf. at right, otherwise very fine; only six positions in a sheet had this variety, thus a total of only 156 were printed (CZSG #1.1b). (Image) $600.00

SOLD for $400.00
Closing..Nov-05, 05:00 PM
1207 og 1a var. image#1a var., 2c Rose, inverted "Canal Zone" overprint, position 96 from the bottom of the sheet, having the additional variety of "Panama" 14 3/4 to 15mm long, natural s.e. at bottom, quite well centered, strong color, slightly disturbed o.g., light h.r., two tiny thin spots, otherwise very fine; only one sheet of 100 of the inverted overprints was issued and since this "Panama" variety occurs on only six positions in the sheet, only six examples could have been printed with this combination of varieties and half of those come from the bottom row having natural straight edges as does this example; signed J.C. Perry (CZSG #1a.1b). (Image) $950.00+

SOLD for $1,800.00
Closing..Nov-05, 05:00 PM
1208 og 1, 1b image#1b, 2c Rose, double "Canal Zone" overprint, variety is left stamp in a horizontal mint pair, one strike is strong and a second complete strike is light and displaced about 1mm to the left, fresh with rich color, full o.g., light h.r., centered a bit to the top right, still a very fine example of this rare overprint error; this example illustrates how this variety legitimately came about, being a handstamp the overprinting device had to be re-inked, the diversity in intensity of the impressions on this issue indicate that the overprint was applied to several stamps before being re-inked, in this case one too many impressions was made and the first impression applied to this stamp was considered too light (the other stamp in this pair evidences this because it is light also), thus the canceller was re-inked and applied again, the clerk trying to apply it over the first impression so that it would not be noticed, Plass indicates that only four examples have been documented.

Closing..Nov-05, 05:00 PM

(Image) $650.00

SOLD for $700.00
Closing..Nov-05, 05:00 PM

Perry. (Image) $1,275.00+

SOLD for $375.00
Closing..Nov-05, 05:00 PM
