  • CAYMAN ISLANDS - 1907 5s salmon and green with the

    CAYMAN ISLANDS - 1907 5s salmon and green with the "SLOTTED FRAME" VARIETY (a cut to the outer frame line at top right). During 1902 and 1903, the Colonies of the Cayman Islands, Gambia, St. Helena and the Seychelles received their new definitive stamps depicting a circular King's portrait topped by a small crown, collectors of these issues will be familiar with the sought-after 'Glover' flaw from position 1/6 of the left-hand pane, commonly referred to as the "Dented Frame". Specialists however, are eagerly hunting another constant plate flaw, the "Slotted Frame" which is found at position 1/4 from the same left pane. This break in the upper frame near the right corner is of equal initial rarity with the Dented Frame but is probably even scarcer due to a higher rate of attrition as the dented frame has been sought after for several decades. This example of SG 16 is in superb never hinged mint condition, the 'Dented Frame' variety on this stamp is the rarest of all and is currently priced at £5000 in mounted mint condition by Stanley Gibbons as SG 16a. It is possible that this is the only never hinged example of the "Slotted Frame" on this stamp. An important opportunity.
