One of the great rarities of Rhodesian philately, a remarkable example of 'what might have been'. Photo also on back cover. De La Rue & Co. were invited to tender for the first British South Africa Co. issue in thirteen denominations and provided a quotation for lithographed stamps. They also proposed two alternative approaches: the use of a key plate design typographically produced, or the use of British stamps suitably overprinted. The overprint bears comparison to those employed for use in Bechuanaland and other territories but mostly closely resembles that approved for the first issue of the British East Africa Co. A single other example of this essay is believed to exist in an institutional collection.
