43   ImageTOGO (British), 1914, 10pf Carmine, Without Watermark, First Setting (37b; SG H3c; Gibbs 3c). Setting 1b, tied on small piece by "Assahun, Togo 10/1 15" circular datestamp, excellent centering, bright color

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. GIBBS STATES ONLY FIVE OR SIX EXAMPLES EXIST OF THE 10-PFENNIG FIRST SETTING WITHOUT WATERMARK.

As this stamp was no longer for sale at the German Post Offices in 1914, there were no examples located within the Kamina or Sansane Mangu finds. Therefore, the 10pf without watermark are only known with individual settings (1b and 1c), all of which are used.

With 1996 B.P.A. certificate. Scott $5,500.00. SG £5,500 (Image)

44 c ImageTOGO (British), 1914, 10pf Carmine, Without Watermark, First Setting (37b; SG H3c; Gibbs 3c). Used with 5pf Green (36 var; H2 var; Gibbs 2 var), both from rare Setting 1b, tied by "Assahun, Togo 3.1.15" circular datestamps on pictorial post card addressed locally

EXTREMELY FINE. ONE OF ONLY TWO RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE 10-PFENNIG WITH WIDE SETTING AND NO WATERMARK USED ON A COVER. A TRULY EXCEPTIONAL EXHIBITION ITEM.

The Setting 1b, and its distinctive features, are discussed in Gibbs on page 166. The 5pf stamp is a rare item in its own right, and magnified by its use with the rare 10pf without watermark and on original post card. Gibbs records only one other use on post card dated Assahun Jan. 14, 1915. Only five or six examples of the No. 37b total have been recorded per Gibbs, all used.

With 2009 Gibbs certificate. Catalogued simply as used singles, Scott $5,500.00 and SG £5,500 (Image)

Setting 2c, tied on small piece by clearly struck "Lome, Togogebiet 20/10 14" circular datestamp, excellent, color, Very Fine, this setting is mentioned in Gibbs on page 167 in the fourth paragraph, he had recorded three similar examples (two 5pf and one 40pf), with this as the only example on the 20pf found after the book's publication, Gibbs believes this setting may be a trial printing and subsequently all struck with the same datestamp, with 2009 Gibbs certificate (Image)

48   ImageTOGO (British), 1915, 40pf Lake & Black, Third Setting (64A; SG H32a; Gibbs 33). Setting 3a, cancelled by neat "Lome, Togo 9.1.15" circular datestamp, well-centered, fresh colors

VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE 40-PFENNIG OF THE THIRD SETTING. ONE OF THE RAREST BRITISH TOGO STAMPS OF WHICH ONLY FIVE EXAMPLES HAVE BEEN RECORDED -- THIS AS THE SOLE EXAMPLE FROM INDIVIDUAL SETTING 3a.

While listed in Scott and Stanley Gibbons as part of the Sansane Mangu overprints, this was technically not part of that find. It closely resembles pos. 25 of that setting with subtle differences that technically qualify it as an individual setting. This example is mentioned in Gibbs on page 168. The other examples known are from Setting 3b.

With 1992 Holcombe certificate. Scott $9,000.00. SG £9,000. Owing to its rarity, we feel the catalogue values are misleading. For example, the 40pf First Setting has over double the known examples, though it is priced slightly higher. (Image)

(not noting individual setting) and 2009 Gibbs certificate, catalogued as normal stamp, Scott $2,500.00, SG £2,500 (Image)
