The 1/2 Red Scinde Dawk was the first stamp issued in all of Asia. Because it was embossed on wafer, less than 100 items are now known to exist, giving 1852 Scinde Dawk stamp the status of exceedingly rare. 1852 ½ anna Scarlet Scinde Dawk, impressed in scarlet wax, was sold $27,000 at H.R. Harmer auction in June, 2016.
