Some Collectors may have noticed the fine Nepal sheets offered at the Cherrystone 16 December 2010 Auction.
For the records, the lots in questions have been No. 2240 and 2241, poorly described, however, the results were surprisingly high.

Lot 2240: NEPAL 1887 1a dark ultramarine, imperforate pane of 64, including two tete-beche pairs, unused without gum as issued, folded between stamps, fine-v.f., rare
This was in fact Setting 8. Estimate $ 800m sold for $ 1800 plus fees.

Lot 2241: NEPAL 1898 1a pale blue, 4a dull green, sheets of 64, unused without gum as issued, folded and creases, mostly between stamps and in margin, some hinge reinforcements and tears, rare
This was in fact a rare setting 1 of the 1 Anna value with the fancy sheet borders, the second sheet now recorded and a 4 Anna sheet, also setting 1, the first sheet recorded. Estimate $ 800m sold for a staggering  $ 35000 plus fees.
