Postage Stamps: 1869 1st Republic to 1882
FIRST REPUBLIC  -  Stamp Commission Printings
1876 Stamp commission printing on stout hard-surfaced paper. 6d deep blue, imperforate, with close to enormous margins. The top third of the stamp is heavily over-inked with the eagle reduced to a blob, while the lower part is ‘normal’. Fine used with light numeral target-type cancellation. A spectacular inking variety and a wonderful example of the alluring charm of Transvaal philately. SG 63c
