The Gernot Reiners Collection of Togo and Cameroon - The Anglo-French Occupation continued...

British Togo - Second (Narrow) Setting continued...
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
29   ImageTOGO (British), 1914, 50pf Purple & Black on Salmon, Second Setting (55; SG H21; Gibbs 21). Tied on small piece by lightly struck "Lome, Togo 29.9.14" circular datestamp, fresh colors

VERY FINE. AN EXTRAORDINARILY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 50-PFENNIG FROM THE SECOND SETTING. GREENWOOD ESTIMATES TWELVE EXAMPLES WERE ISSUED, GIBBS SLIGHTLY HIGHER AT ABOUT 20.

Only 24 50pf stamps were found in Kamina, plus an unknown amount elsewhere. Gibbs believes all of those found at Kamina were used on the Wide Setting plus those found elsewhere - likely leaving very few for the Narrow Setting left.

Interestingly, the cancel is dated Sept. 29 while the Post Office in Lome only started issuing this setting on Oct. 1. Researchers speculate that these were either backdated or made available to those with special privileges prior to opening. The Gibbs example has the same date along with a similarly light cancel.

With 1968 B.P.A. certificate. Scott $9,000.00. SG £9,000 (Image)

VERY FINE. THIS IS THE UNIQUE EXAMPLE OF THE BROKEN "E" VARIETY ON AN ALREADY IMMENSELY RARE 50-PFENNIG FROM THE SECOND SETTING. GREENWOOD ESTIMATES TWELVE EXAMPLES WERE ISSUED, GIBBS SLIGHTLY HIGHER AT ABOUT 20 OF THE BASIC STAMP.

Only 24 50pf stamps were found in Kamina, plus an unknown amount elsewhere. Gibbs believes all of those found at Kamina were used on the Wide Setting plus those found elsewhere - likely leaving very few for the Narrow Setting left.

Interestingly, the cancel is dated Sept. 29 while the Post Office in Lome only started issuing this setting on Oct. 1. Researchers speculate that these were either backdated or made available to those with special privileges prior to opening.

36   ImageTOGO (British), 1914, 2m Blue, Second Setting (58; SG H24; Gibbs 24). Setting 2, with bottom right corner sheet selvage and affixed to piece cancelled by light "Lome, Togo 29.9.14" circular datestamp, well-centered with wide margins

VERY FINE. AN IMMENSE RARITY OF TOGO. ONLY TWELVE USED EXAMPLES HAVE BEEN RECORDED OF THIS 2-MARK WITH NARROW SETTING WITH NO UNUSED EXAMPLES KNOWN.

Gibbs states "it is possible that a sheet of 20 was overprinted although I do not believe that 20 examples exist". Of the twelve recorded, one resides in the Royal Collection.

Similar to the the 50pf and 80pf from this collection, the cancel is dated Sept. 29 while the Post Office in Lome only started issuing this setting on Oct. 1. Researchers speculate that these were either backdated or made available to those with special privileges prior to opening. The Gilbert example, which also had selvage at bottom, has the same datestamp with similarly light strike.
