Note: There exists an error on this Overprint (Unlisted in Catalogues)
The end figure that looks like a lower case "b" (=T) is genuine , as yours,
In the error, the text looks like several "u" (=SH)
Occurs once in every sheet of 200


Acknowledgement: Mr. Tony Gelat advised me in 2004

I remain discombobulated with Stanley Gibbons reference " Surcharged Typeno / wrap" any members aware of what that may be

Geoff,
this may explain your "unknown"

Thanks, Rod. Unless I'm even dopier than usual thus evening, I don't see anything in Tony's note that corresponds with the 1 piaster on 2.40 piaster. Perhaps it had some other, non-postage purpose.

Geoff, my bad.
I was connecting the early unlisted Opts to your issue, which is a standard Opt. (My dopier self)

If you wish, I can forward it to O.N.E.P.S. for identification.

For the record,
the "Typeno wrap" phrase by Stanley Gibbons, so astutely deciphered by our member CJD.
