409 og ImageCAYMAN ISLANDS, 1907-08, 1p on 4p Georgetown Provisional, Double Surcharge (20 Footnote, SG 35 Footnote, Barefoot 1b). Original gum, clear doubling as much a 1mm from each strike, fresh colors, horizontal crease

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A CAYMAN ISLANDS RARITY WITH ONLY ABOUT FOUR EXAMPLES KNOWN AND THIS BEING ONE OF THE MORE STRIKING DOUBLES. MISSING FROM EVEN SOME OF THE MOST ADVANCED COLLECTIONS.
