Cyprus 1880 (1 Apr) ½d rose, type 1 overprint on GB, plate 19, lettered "JE" , fresh colour with above average centring, excellent perfs and full original gum (with just a trace of hingeing).

Only two sheets issued, and most were used. Accompanied with British Philatelic Association certificate (1971). (SG catalogue price: £5,000) Mint. SG 1
