Lebanon Scott #C-36 - I recall reading somewhere (probably an auction catalog, but could not POSSIBLY remember whose) that there were a total of 100 of the Type II overprints printed. I know this stamp is scarce, and suspect this quantity is reasonable. Anyone know anything about this figure??

My real reason for this post: does anyone know the layout of the Type II stamps? Are there a small number of them in a sheet of Type I stamps?? Thus, se-tenant pairs are possible, which I have never heard of. Or... was this issued in full sheets of Type II, and only a sheet or two were ever printed??? I've never seen a block of any size of the Type II. I'd LOVE to see one!!

Hi mootermutt987
According to my SG catalogue the T2 surcharge overprint varies from T1 by the size / shape of the figures. The catalogue does not mention the possibility of se-tenant pairs, just to beware of forgeries of T2.
Both T1 & T2 have high cat values, £200 & £1000 respectively mint, £225 & £950 used.
Regards
DavidR

Assuming that this is the 15 pi on 25 pi blue, Maury says that two sheets of 50 stamps were printed with the Type II surcharge - there shouldn't, therefore, be se-tenant pairs.

And more on the 15 pi overprint on this interesting site

Thank you, DavidR and GeoffHa! That's exactly what I was hoping to learn. So... my dream of a se-tenant pair is dashed, but there is still hope for a Type II block! At 1000 Euros per stamp, a block must be a truly scarce item. I've been looking for close to 30 years, and still haven't seen a block. I'm saving my pennies....

"My dream of a se-tenant pair is dashed " No it is not ,there is still the error on a se-tenant pair of the 1962 Boy Scout .
