To put the rarity of this stamp into perspective, the 10c on 30c with Chinese characters similarly with double surcharge has been recorded incl. within a complete mint pane, and a handful of singles (currently priced at 12,000 by SG). ONLY one row in a single pane became doubly printed, and the row comprised a setting of six subjects (incl. the above variety showing 'EN' broken); Moving on to the same stamp issue without Chinese characters which this is, ONLY ONE OTHER EXAMPLE IS KNOWN and unpriced by SG, and to find one with this combination of broken letters is almost certainly unique. A Hong Kong and indeed Asian philately rarity of the highest calibre.

20383Great Britain - QEII (decimal)1971-2014 SPECIALIZED MACHINS unmounted mint collection in 15 albums contained in two large boxes. The collection is estimated to contain over 10,000 stamps values p to 5 including phosphor, printing and shade varieties, coils, hundreds of booklets, miniature sheets, cylinder blocks, Post & Go labels. The collection has been meticulously compiled with all the relevant technical information and colour images on computer generated pages. Values over 5 are included if you count the 'Special Delivery' stamps, in sheets of ten. Although earlier issues are represented the main body of the collection is more modern issues from 1990. Highly specialized with cylinder blocks and booklets with scarcer cylinder numbers, this collection would be impossible to replicate. The collector has calculated a face value of 7,037, however, postage rates have increased since this, giving added value to the 1000s of non value indicated stamps. Vendor states SG catalogue value 30,062. HEAVY LOT - OVERSEAS BIDDERS PLEASE ENQUIRE FOR SHIPPING COSTS 10000
