A B1

4½d violet with 'POUR PENCE' for 'FOUR PENCE', well centred, lightly cancelled with a NSW cds. Unrecorded by Wajer & the ACSC. [This appears to be an engraving error & not an ink-clogging variety.

A B1

1937-49 Definitives Perf 15x14 1/- Lyrebird block of 20 (10x2) with two Authority Imprints & lines in the gutter, also with part Plate Number '7' at base, the upper-right unit mounted otherwise unmounted. An important new discovery. [The ACSC records only three plate blocks of this stamp - '3' at top, '4' at top and '-6-' at base but states at page 4/107 that "...seven...plates were manufactured, of which six were used for printing". This could be from Plate 3 - in which case it would be the first plate block recorded from the base of the sheet - but the unique Plate 3 block BW #209z has a '3' with rounded top. It is almost inconceivable that the engraver would have placed a straight-top '3' at the base. In addition, the almost 90 degree angle of the downstroke adds to our confidence that this is the first record of stamps from Plate 7]

A+ A1

1956 Olympic Games 3½d carmine-lake BW #332E(1), well centred, unmounted, under-catalogued at $5000. Superb! An internationally important item for an Olympic Games collection. ÞÞWhile the ACSC characterises this item as an "essay", it is more correctly an unissued stamp. 27,000,000 booklet stamps had been printed when the decision was made to raise the basic rate to 4d. The Post Office destroyed all but a few sheets. At the two Archival Sales conducted in 1987 & 1988, a total of 40 stamps was sold, comprising 4 singles, 4 booklet panes of 6, and a plate number block of 12 (sold for $109,250 at our sale of 24/5/2008). The last single we handled sold for $12,075 at our auction of 24/5/2008.
