Switzerland: Zurich 1843 4 rappen, an unused horizontal strip of five.
Printer: Orell, Fussli & Co.
In 1843 Switzerland, was the second country after Great Britain to issue postage stamps, when the canton of Zurich issued 4 and 6 rappen values.
Unlike the British 1d black and 2d blue, the main feature of the design is the face value. These were printed by lithography by Orell, Fussli & Company of Zurich. In 1850 the stamps of Federal Switzerland superseded them.
The 4 rappen horizontal strip of five is the largest known unsevered multiple and unique thus.
