Very rare stamp! My research shows a total of 5 appearances at auction over the last 25 years, but those 5 appearances comprise only 2 different stamps, one sold 3 times and the other one sold twice. This is the finer of the two stamps. Not as sharply defined as the other double impressions in my collection, but the R18c is notorious for having muddy impressions due to the nature of the ink.
