Haiti. 1881, an extraordinary group of selected first-issue items, most of them originating from the renowned Sabbatini collection, including 1c. to 20c. complete set of die proofs in definitive colours, 1c. complete sheet of 50, 7c. in an impressive block of eight representing the largest used multiple recorded, as well as six covers bearing significant frankings including 1c. marginal pair paying the rare 2c. internal rate, 1c. (3) & 7c. in a very scarce example to pay the external rate on cover to Boston, 5c. (2) on two covers to New York and Paris, 7c. in mixed franking with 1882-86 perforated 3c. on envelope to Great Britain, and cover to this same destination with very rare franking, paying the double rate, featuring 3c.
