1896, no. 6, overprint in red, 2 and a half on 2a, please note that as far as I can tell and as can be seen from the image (note the small 2 on the image) the overprint is Stanley Gibbons Type 8, which makes it Stanley Gibbons No. 28..........pale blue, with 2nd Z small, according to the specialists No. 28 only exists with the 2nd Z small on Zanzibar Overprint, which this particular stamp also has,  + Zanzibar overprint on back of the stamp also 3mm higher than the one in the front, read the same way, superb mm. 

That makes this particular stamp a unique classic of the British Empire. It is a superb copy, therefore the asking price is a bargain.

Please refer to image inlay for full details, if still unsure or unclear please do not hesitate to ask me a question as I cannot be held responsible for any errors that are visible on the image and are not noticed before purchase.
