THE LOT COMPRISES A FINE UNMOUNTED MINT PAIR OF AN UNLISTED 2010 STYLE NARROW OVERPRINT SETTING 40c ON 6c xxx. THE STAMP IS A NEW ONE ON ME AND WILL NO DOUBT TURN OUT TO BE ANOTHER PARTICULARLY HARD STAMP TO FIND. ALL THE 6c SHEETS HAD REPORTEDLY BEEN USED UP LONG BEFORE THE 40c OVERPRINTS STARTED!
HOW MUCH IS IT WORTH, WELL THAT IS A $64 QUESTION SO I'LL START IT AT A VERY MODEST $64!
I would recommend that any interested collectors read the excellent book by Bryan Jones covering the first four years of these issues (2006 - 2009). It is published by the Pacific islands Study Circle (PISC), as is the quarterly magazine Pacifica which is another excellent source of information. >
