1312 ngbl image1933, Third Issue, imperforate, 2/3t Prussian blue (Chan TL22. Scott 15), Waterfall #129, complete sheet of 12, Setting Ib, without gum as issued; a few small inclusions as often encountered, Very Fine, an exceptionally rare early setting, with 2010 Geoffrey Flack photo opinion,

This remarkable sheet is from the Second State of the First Setting, which is distinguishable by the top right corner of cliché 10 being below the top left corner of cliché 11. The First Setting is nearly always encountered with pin perforations. Arnold Waterfall originally wrote that he knew of only one imperforate sheet from the First Setting. Since then, another sheet, presumably this example, was found in Kalimpong in 2010.
