CYPRUS 1882 30PA RARE PROVISIONAL MINT

In 1882, whilst awaiting the arrival of supplies of the 30pa definitives, this elusive provisional was in use for only seventeen days (22 May – 7 June)! Most of these provisionals were used postally whilst the remainders were used for accountancy purposes. This F/M example of the 30pa on 1pi rose (SG 24) is exceptionally rare unused thus and is currently available on our Swiss colleague’s website Filat AG.
