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. US2

All stamps unused with overall original protective backing adhesion, described as glassine tissue by the RPS, but more accurately described as semi-transparent greaseproof protective paper which essentially is the over-riding reason why these sheets facially are so fresh, fine and beautiful. The fact that the protective backing paper adheres to the stamps is the very reason why these sheets exist today in such remarkable fresh appearance (one example of the 3a violet is thinned upon the reverse but reveals the perfect original gum locked in time by the backing paper). Minor wrinkling and a few negligible tone spots otherwise beautiful. It is almost as though, unknowingly, a previous owner has protected these three sheets facially to Exhibition Standard.
