Malayan State; Pahang, 1889, 8c orange, "PAHANG" overprint on Straits Settlements, very light cancel and quite well centred for this issue, fine and very rare, Royal Cert. (2002).
SG 2; £1,800 ($2,300). (Scott 2).
Scott $2,000

George Asch, one of the great collectors of British Asia, had three o.g. copies of the 8c and only 1 used. He was quoted that his copy "was the only used copy he had ever seen." We think this is scarce and is the equal to his.

Opening Bid $650
