1989 Surch '20t & bars' on Fish 17t, error DOUBLE opt, both equally strong with 1st shifted 8mm vertically so straddling the perfs & bars in middle of stamp, while 2nd in normal position (over inked so fat 20t appearance). Postally F-VFU. SG 602a error listed but the low SG cat value is totally w/o any basis. In the last 20 years we have handled several major PNG collections of opt varieties with many unique items, none of which contained an example of this double opt error, nor have we seen any examples of it sold by any other auctions. The double opt error must have been all used up on normal mail & vast majority discarded, this apparently only the 2nd discovered! 2021 Ceremuga AIEP photo cert. (P)
