    7, 1886 1a Blue, four singles, a pair, a block of 9, and a block of 12 (all mint) showing the "split cliche flaw" found in position F8 (cliche 48), neatly mounted on exhibit page, this cliche was damaged as early as setting 1 and remained so until all cliches were recut with setting 26, stamps arranged chronologically so one can see how the impression became less crisp over time, the two blocks also show an inverted cliche in position H6, all Very Fine, an interesting group that would be difficult if not impossible to replicate
