The "rats & mice" of the collection. A selection of mostly defective but generally presentable stamps from 22 users with values to 2/- (2) and including Red (10) & Blue (3) Overprints. The best item is Red 'C.S.' on 1/- with GPO cds of AP1/68 being First Day of the Departmentals. (Qty 39)

The very colourful balance of the collection with 76 stamps from 29 users and values to 2/- (3) including 'P.S.' '3-PENCE' in Black on 4d blue (Ex Colonel Napier, with RPSofL Certificate).
