The First Condominium Series of 1908 -- The 1d Omitted Overprint



The 1908 1d omitted overprint is one of the greatest rarities of New Hebrides philately. The stamp was issued on October 29, 1908.

The first information I found that there was a great rarity in this issue was a notice in GSM: (graphical layout below)

Hals / Collas in their book "The New Hebrides - Postal Stamps and Their History" (Collector's Club Handbook 20, New York 1967) write that in 1911 and for many years after it was thought that the top row of the sheet did not have an overprint. The block Power presented had no selvedges and one couldn't find the truth.
