Lot #3482
THAILAND
1899 1a-10a set of five, 1a gum toned, 2a without gum, others, including 4a black & green and 10a carmine & green fresh, minor h.r., well centered for this issue, fine-v.f., very rare (the so-called "Rejected Die," this set was printed in 1887 at the firm of Giesecke & Devrient of Leipzig, Germany, but was rejected by King Chulalongkom (Rama V). However, in error, a number of these stamps were delivered to post offices in Battambang, Korat, and Phuket. When the mistake came to light, all the remaining stamps at the three post offices were immediately withdrawn, and together with the stock in Bangkok, were burned)
