GB used abroad in MAYAGUEZ PORTO (PUERTO) RICO F85. Very rare and very attractive. 6d mauve plate 9 block of 4 – NOT PRICED in Stanley Gibbons catalogue! The 6d mauve is listed by Stanley Gibbons but is so uncommon that they are unable to give a price for it. This is probably the only 6d mauve plate 9 block from Mayaguez? It is cancelled in bright blue, which is many times rarer than the normal black cancel and is very attractive – see the scans. 2 inverted to see the F85 cancel more clearly – this is a single cancel for the 4 stamps, against GPO regulations. 3 the back of the stamp, showing how clean the stamp is, and also that the perforations are intact, with no reinforcement. According to Stanley Gibbons, blocks of 4 of the 6d plate 9 attract a premium of over 33% compared with 4 single stamps. There are some minor faults: about half of the top margin is trimmed; the bottom right perfs along the bottom perforation are blunted with some light toning; there is a small tear ear the top mof the bottom right stamp (you can see this in the scan of the back of the stamps).
