1901 Yacht Issue 2 Pesa Proof

Prior to the issuance of the 1901 Yacht Issues, a proof was produced of the 2 Pesa issue. The proof is in the same color as the issued version, but is imperforate.

Additionally, top-margin copies show that the sheet row value counters on the proof sheets were denominated in Mark/Pfennig values consistent with a sheet of 3 Pfennig issues instead of the proper Rupie/Pesa values. These upper-margin copies with incorrect value counters are cataloged separately by Michel as MiNr. 11 P II.
