100 pounds Kenya and Uganda (Scott #41F), unused block of 4 with plate number 1 at lower right, unused
Block of four of a Colonial high-value stamp, Kenya and Uganda, 1925. For many years, British and Colonial authorities considered postage just another tax. The high values of many stamp series were used for revenue purposes rather than postage, and were often printed in very small quantities. This is believed to be the only surviving block of four of the Kenya and Uganda 100 pounds value, which was mainly used for liquor and game hunting licenses.
