BAHRAIN 1957 (MNH) 3P SHEIKH SULMAN PLATE BLOCK
3p Sheikh Sulman bin Hamed al-Khalifa bottom left corner plate 1 block x 4. Scarce and undercatalogued. Fresh and fine. Mint never hinged. SGL4
Note: although issued primarily for postage within Bahrain, the stamps were also valid for external mail.
The Stanley Gibbons 1983 Elizabethan catalogue states 3,000 copies of the 3p were sold. Given the stamps were printed in sheets of 80, and the plate number appears only once per sheet, a maximum of 38 plate blocks can exist
