With Van Kerckhoven writing on the reverse side - SINGLE PIECE

Before the overprint could be applied to stamps, it had to be applied to the sheet border/the interpanes to ensure that the overprint would look good on the stamps. This 'test' needed to be torn off and destroyed according to the regulations, but had been preserved on rare occasions.
