Jamaica 1920 1s Orange-Yellow & Red-Orange SG85a Frame Inverted Neatly Cancelled

Jamaica

1920 1s Orange-Yellow & Red-Orange SG85a Frame Inverted

Neatly Cancelled with Crisp Clear Double Ring Circular Date Stamp of "Kingston JU 27"

With Vivid Fresh Colour & Perfectly Centred

An Attractive example of this Great Rarity

A hardly visible ironed out vertical crease and tiny expertly repaired tear bottom right not detracting from this Iconic Stamp

One of only 5 used examples in existence and the only example with KINGSTON CDS, the other 4 used examples all having the "MANCHIONEAL"  or Fiscal Cancel

The Holy Grail of Jamacian Philately & one of the Key Rarities for Inverted Centres in The World

According to most accounts, this frame inverted variety was discovered by a local collector at the small Post Office in Manchioneal  in March 1922. It is presumed that only one sheet of sixty must have been printed, with half the sheet going to Manchioneal and some being fiscally used, while, the other half sheet went to Kingston, as this example is the only known example with Kingston CDS.  Estimates vary among specialists as to the exact numbers of these errors that still exist, but the number is believed to be between 10 and 20 with only 5 used and only 1 with KINGSTON CDS
